We set sails September 9th for Mexico from SF!!. The boat is almost ready! I have one more big project (water maker) and tons of little ones. Last week, we finalized the last crew position. I was back east and met with Mike and he is in for the 7 month adventure. We added a new radar last week as well. Went for a sail with Max and Kona yesterday and all is well with Aquarius. I can't wait to shove off!!
Nature update: A recent trip to the Farallones (islands off SF) saw 15 humpbacks, five blue whales, and 1 minke whale. 70 Risso's dolphins, and 80 Pacific white sided dolphins. That's alot!!
