Aboard Astraea

Invest in experiences, not things

We made it to see Astraea!


We flew in to see Astraea. She’s in about the condition we expected.

The first day Mom and Dad came down and we wrapped up the masts for shipping and removed all the rigging. We also checked out all the stuff in thestorage unit.
Today we made our first meal on the boat, pizza in the oven. It took a while to figure how the stove worked. There will be a definite learning curve for this new boat. The good news is, the prior owner offered to  help with recommissioning. This will help us get comfortable with all the systems.
