While Lil’ Dinghy is launched and I’m anxious to get on land in Bermuda and see the islands, and also get some things done (provisions on/garbage off, propane, a good restaurant meal, couple new lines and fittings, etc.), this morning’s weather is conspiring against me with spitting rain and overcast skies. Oh well, the weak cold front is to pass today and tomorrow’s weather should be fine for shore activities.
With a little time on my hands and an hour or two of internet access left on a 24-hour plan, I thought I’d give a little pictorial tour of HJ’s interior as a refresher. Do keep it mind that it’s just me on her so she’s in a bit of “bachelor mode.”
If you’ve ever seen the movie Master and Commander based on the Patrick O’Brien novel of the same name, it has an accurate portrayal of most everything on a boat having more than one purpose (depending upon conditions and what’s needed from her). I like the scenes in the movie where the officers are having a spirited dinner in the captain’s quarters, and then when fired upon by their French nemesis, the captain’s quarters are cleared, table stowed and the area is converted to an aft gun deck. There are parallels on Hazel.
