Prepping for Polynesia

We are now in the throws of prepping for the Pacific Puddle Jump. Interlude has new PPG ABC3 bottom paint, Propspeed, zincs and Awlcare on her Dupont Imron clearcoat topsides thanks to the good folks at KKMI in Richmond.
Swedish Marine got her Sea Recovery watermaker and Webasto diesel heater (it may be chilly leaving San Francisco) going again. New running rigging by Hansen Rigging was also due after twelve years. Katie is adding a couple more coats of interior varnish and making Costco provisioning runs. Kurt is checking all systems including engines, generators, hydraulics, autopilots, navigation electronics, communications radios and computers. We plan to be underway sometime in April.
