Things on a sailboat
These are pictures I have taken along the way and I have created a little guessing game, but only for those of you who really don't know sailboats that well. There are some easy ones, but others you might have to do some research. Starting with the picture at the top left and working your way through like reading a book, which picture goes with.... 1 halyards 2 helm 3 hatch 4 boom 5 bow 6 winch 7 captain 8 radar 9 mast 10 dodger 11 flag 12 gimbled cooking device 13 life lines 14 spreader 15 gimbled lamp 16 main sail Have fun!
Kathy & Jerry.......love exploring the Gulf Islands and coastal waters of British Columbia on our sailboat. We also have become fond of exploring central Mexico during the winter months, and hanging out in the small town of Ajijic. We hope our photos and blogging will give you the chance to experience the same, and maybe inspire you to do some exploring yourself.
New crew member
We welcome aboard our newest crew.... Maggie. She joined our family this spring on March 23. She celebrated her first birthday on April 27th. She is very smart, so we are hopeful that she will learn her new duties quickly.
Splendid Mane is a 2002 Beneteau 393, 40 feet in lenght. We have radar, color chartplotter, 56 hp yanmar engine, autopilot, autostream feathering propeller, dingy with 6hp engine, dodger with full enclosure, two staterooms, two heads, fully equipped galley, and lots more extras. It is a safe, comfortable boat for two people but would be easy to sail singlehanded as well.
