Christmas 2011 move

To start 2012, we moved the boat from the shop in Newark, CA that’s been home for over a decade. Rent on the Santa Rosa, CA shop began 1/1/12, with resolutions made to get the beams built this year. At this point, the floats are complete and finish painted. The main hull is complete, with the fore-cabin and main saloon furniture mostly built. Galley, head, rear cabin, propulsion, steering, dagger, rudder, main hatches, electrical and plumbing all yet to be started.

Loaded by 9am on a Landoll tilt bed trailer

Four Ravenswing videos for you

Hey friends, I just realized the four YouTube videos from the boat’s October ’21 trip never got posted to you here! Ravenswing spent a full year out of the water, getting numerous upgrades, but mostly because the pandemic made it challenging to use the boat in another country. So although the four 1,800+ mile drives back and forth from San Francisco to Puerto Penasco in Sonora, MX were a total pain in the ass, I really enjoyed getting to know the people and area. And the long break from sailing made the “splash” and the trip back to Baja very rewarding. Big thanks to Anton for getting on the plane to Phoenix and taking the shuttle van to Penasco. You’ll see in the videos he seemed to have a pretty good time on this cruise :)

Save this post’s email so you can go back and forth to catch all four of these YouTubes. Don’t try it all in one evening, my narration is way to tiring for that! Please when you watch any of these, click the Subscribe button on YouTube to get notices of future Ravenswing videos.

Enjoy the show(s)
