Sunday Night and Dorade Box

It looks like tomorrow night (30 Oct) might be the night! It's snowing now in Boston, and we really want to start this trip. If we leave at night, we should make the East entrance to the Cape Cod Canal in the morning, which would mean we could potentially anchor in Cuttyhunk during the afternoon. It looks like the wind will stay in the West for a day or two, which isn't great for us. We might head due south until the wind goes to the northwest, then we could cut in.

I've included a picture of my new dorade box. The old one went overboard this summer during an accidental jibe. Rory and Roger helped me fashion this replacement. I ordered a low-profile cowl vent, but it hasn't yet arrived. Turns out the store that sold it to me was hit by the hurricane... Nice.

You might need to start a glossary for us land lubbers who don't know such terms as dorade box. I will be thinking of you often and look forward to hearing news.
