A New Year... So It Goes

Happy New Year from all of us aboard So It Goes...

We wish everyone a happy, healthy, fun, and prosperous new year.

So, here we are in St Croix.  Today marks 4 weeks since we were dismasted on our St Thomas to Antigua journey. It was terrible to lose our mast, rigging, sails, etc. but we are so fortunate because it could have been worse.  I am also thankful for our Electric Yacht motor which performed so well getting us to St Croix and also to our Honda EU2000i generator.

We took a well-needed break from studying various masts and sails to replace our former Bermuda sloop rig.

We've read a few books:

and have had a few swims around the boat

where we met a few of our local neighbors...

Buffy & Willow aren't running about chasing each other outside at night as much.  Maybe because they don't have the boom to jump up on... just not as much fun now that the boat terrain has changed. I'm sure they'll like having two masts inside the boat for new scratching posts though :)

All the best!
