S2 E5 – Cold Day, Hot Wine

We’re back! After a long hiatus thanks to our fried video editing laptop, we are going to start off right where we left off and over the next several episodes, catch you up on what’s happened with Rad Mode and her crew since episode 4.

Doors vs Curtains

Hubby and I have talked in length about if it would be better to have doors or curtains on Rad Mode. After our experience on our first sailboat and advice from serious sailor friends of ours we made the decision to go with curtains and forgo doors so today Annabelle helped me finish up making…

Oh my sweet sweet love of mine…

Long awaited… even longer over due… the new laptop has finally arrived! Oh let me tell you the nightmare it has been to get a simple new laptop. After numerous cancellations (not because of us) and shipping errors we have finally received our laptop and are back in action!!! One of the issues, believe it…

Day 2 of Drizzle…

This is the second day of being wet and virtually no end in sight. We set the hook down in the Bay to ride out the weather, but it is so cold! I am probably just being a baby, but as of late the first thing I see every morning is my own breath. A…
