On Friday the 13th in 2009 we signed the paperwork and bought a beautiful new (to us) sailboat henceforth to be called, S/V ITINERANT!
…Once again, at sea at last!
S/V Itinerant is a (we think) 1961 Philip Rhodes designed “Chesapeake” sloop rigged sailboat.
She came equipped with 180 watts on 3 solar panels and a Rutland 913 wind power generator,
we are now officially OFF-THE(Mythical)-Grid!!!
Fair Winds And Following Seas, Sucka’s!!!
Saturday the 14th- V-Day! Our first night aboard S/V Itinerant and all is well!
Our new marina, the “Rebel Marina” on the Willoughby Spit in Norfolk, VA. is a real gem in the sea of iffy Chesapeake marinas! It’s not only beautiful it’s friendly and has incredible access. For cruising sailors they offer free wi/fi, a loaner car and a very intensely hot, hot-tub!
Big tyme congrats !!!!!
Tonight is our first night aboard, she’s a beauty!!!
I hope we’ll see each other “out there”, some day
