Next steps

Oct 4th, 20112 Comments

Now that the first essential step is done (find and buy the boat) I pass to meet following ones.

Strider needs some work, few but just enough to make me drop the idea of face the sea immediately. It will be pulled to the ground in Blackpool waiting me until April or May 2012 when, with the warm weather I will go to put my hands on it.

In the meantime, given my limited budget I have to study and understand how to do all the work and necessary expenses without breaking the budget.

The points that I have to focus on are: Replacement of sails, installation of a wind vane, a solar panel installation, deck and hull paint, safety equipment and documents, galley organization, buy spare parts, materials and tools necessary … Surely this list is going to grew up, and the difficulty is to build a priority ordered list.

Moved to Blackpool, in a couple of months I will do all the work on Strider. Once ready I will do day sailing in the Irish Sea to put everything in place while awaiting the right weather window to make the big jump.

My ultimate goal is to cross the ocean alone and my destination is set in the Amazon.
But before the ocean I have so much work to organize and do… one step at a time.
