At home port, Vermilion, Ohio

1700  The Bumboat is almost fully provisioned for Leg 1. The last few days were spent getting the ship in shape:
  • We have taken on 46 gallons of diesel, topping off the tank at 108 gallons 
  • Freshwater tanks filled, black water emptied 
  • Purchased and stowed $750 worth of food and drink 
  • Lashed the dingy to the foredeck 
  • Completed one last check of major systems 
  • One last buffing of the teak before we scrape it up on the wharfs of upper Canada
