Heidi gettin' Hygge

Since we’ve been getting Due West spit-and-polished, we thought we might as well give her a new blog too! While we’ve really appreciated all that Sailblogs has had to offer over the years, it has been very cumbersome to use. So Heidi is hoping by having a new WordPress blog, it will cut her blogging tasks in half.

We are still working on leaving Banderas Bay. It’s sticky they say! Some call it Boomerang Bay, as you always come back again… that is if you can get away in the first place!

An unseasonably COLD weather front brought us 3″ of rain in a 30-hour period ringing in New Year’s Eve… and it was actually cold enough for Heidi to don her wool socks, fleece pants, and hoodie! And with it, we found a few areas of water intrusion. So once things dry out, Kirk will be caulking those up. Our “to-do” list is definitely getting shorter, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. So when will we actually cast off our lines and sail away?

    I saw hour picture of your Jerry can covers on Pinterest. Could you give me a step by step how you made them. I have 5 to cover and can’t seem to get the top right. We have a Pearson 365 sailboat and hope to get to the Bahamas this spring.

      Hi Laurie, thanks for your question. We had them made by a canvas maker in Mexico. I will take a few photos and email them to you, maybe that will help.
