The Adventure-Boat...Goes Shopping.
Add on a few other electronics: a GoPro to capture the fun, a solar charger to keep everything topped up, a basket full of A- and C- batteries, and a motorcycle battery to power the GPS on the overnight watch... Never mind the snake-bite kit (!), hypothermia kit, first aid kits, cooking kit, sleep system, dry-bags for clothes, and the rest of the expedition gear needed for the adventure.
Johnson brand stock might have gone up based on the volume of Ziploc bags we bought. Bags for flashlights, for food, for electronics, for anything and everything. There's even a jumbo-sized Ziploc that easily gulps up the fluffiest of sleeping bags.
Jeff's cousin Robin steered us toward NiteRider lights. Waterproof, stout, powerful, and designed for use in active sports (night surfing anyone?) these are super cool:
And the solar panel will re-charge them. May everything else we purchase in the next few months be half as nifty!

A little late now but the Streamlight Waypoint spotlight is a great choice for a "thrower" type light.

HC is not feeling the love. Luke and I have canceled our EC plans. Meade has decided to sell the boat. He has asked me to handle that sale, so if you know anyone that might be interested let me know. :-(

The Everglades Cha and your blog's connection to Jan and Meade and their decades of great designs and world of sailing contributions takes some oldtime sailboys fondly back to their childhoods. Very great !

Made it down to the boat building hideout over the past weekend and gotta say what a nice job Jeff and O.H. are doing in creating a beautiful EC machine! They let me do a little work on the rig.. Very cool to see it coming together!
