Friendship shrine #1: The beginning.

08-08-2021 10:55 PM by mafe | 14 comments »

Friendship shrineThe beginning. This is a story and project, that has been on it’s way, for a long, long time.Some of the materials arrived in my workshop, for more than ten years ago, the build started in 2016 and had several holds on it’s way, for many reasons. It’s a project that emerged out of friendships, that I made on LJ, some that grew over the years, some that vanished and some of them went into personal friendships, one even to a brother, with a different mother. So a proje...

Sunday we went our various ways, four of us spending the night in the beautiful and peaceful Annette Inlet on Prevost Island.The sail home on Monday was marked by big wind (~20 kn) for ...

For the Sailors and Boat Lovers #5: I'm Ba-aaack. Part one: The Desolation Sound leg

07-18-2014 04:09 AM by shipwright | 34 comments »

The trip to Desolation Sound actually took only eighteen days, due largely to good weather and some scheduling requirements but was an amazing success. Most nights were spent at peaceful anchorages and most days were spent sailing although the motors were used when necessary and marinas were welcomed occasionally for showers and laundry. (and oh yes, ice cream)Here is the route for the trip. If anyone knows how to post this as an active Google Earth file, it has all my photos geo-tagged on it...
