Sunday (June 11,2017) Ro and I are moving aboard Nomad for our trip north! This has been a long time coming and it couldn’t happen fast enough. I like Myrtle Beach, but I need to get on the water.
This week I called out a mechanic to do a complete mechanical check up on Nomad. He changed the oil in all three motors, all the filters, checked the raw water screens and fixed a couple of other things. I now am solid with the fact that the boat is in very good shape. I couldn’t do this stuff because of my “new” knee. Climbing over the engines and kneeling on the diamond plate floor would not only be painful, but I could damage my knee.
We are spending the time today and tomorrow stocking up on provisions, clothes, and other junk you need to live aboard for the next 6 months.
I will try to keep this up to date. Oh, yes, be sure to check out Ro’s blog (Click here), she has her own views on this trip.
