Before we get to our favorite things… first things first – GIRO is a sailing vessel again! Can I get a whoop-whoop!?
We took her out for a spin this past weekend and it was as glorious as I remember. You know, since the last time I hoisted the sails. More than a year ago. During our week-long sail school.
I’ll let Matt fill you in (through a different post) on all of the gritty details of all of the work GIRO required after our lightning strike, the discovery that we needed new standing rigging, and the eventual depletion of our savings in favor of a functioning sailboat. Sigh. But this is not that post! THIS post highlights our favorite gadgets, items and stuff we use on a daily basis to keep us happy on our boat!
We’ve been living aboard for 80 days now. ALL OF THEM IN A MARINA, IN TEXAS, IN THE SUMMER. So, you know. It’s been swell.
