Twelve Days of (Cruising) Christmas

more work

It seems that maintenance and cruising are somehow inextricably intertwined…so we giggled our way through a “routine maintenance and one exotic location” riff on a holiday classic.

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: twelve expired flares!

Eleven rusting stanchions
Ten volt batteries
Nine frozen turnbuckles
Eight mildewed cushions
Seven squeaky winches
Six broken shackles
Five leaky hatches
Four chafed halyards
Three blown-out sails
Two clogged heads
…and a sunset in Papeete.


Happy holidays, from our floating home to wherever you are!
