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

Boat relaxes in MX, humans toil in CA

OK, good people, I’m finally figuring out how to transition from a mostly-photos blog to more videos. You guys are the guinea pigs here; can you stand the amateur editing job you’re about to see? We have a lot of good footage from Ravenswing in Mexico, but that’s too valuable for hacking with first time iMovie attempts. This Memorial Day weekend has been the time to figure out the editing software. I’m completely humbled by the people making their livings as “YouTubers”; S/V Delos, Salt & Tar, and all the rest spend hundreds of hours making their high quality movies. Here at cartersboat.com we’re just going to work to the limit of my attention span :)

Ravenswing is fine, according to the folks keeping an eye on her. I hate this separation, and we’re missing prime Baja cruising season. But of course we’re really only concerned about the safety of friends and the Baja Sur residents, avoiding a COVID outbreak. With all the uncertainty of what’s coming in the next year, our current thought is to sail the boat home to San Francisco as soon as it’s permissible. But right now I need to heal up from last Friday’s prostate surgery, and get the prior trips’ videos out to you all. And as you’ll see here, we’ve got some new retaining walls to build…  yea, it ain’t a boat video yet, but just think of it as taking care of the boat workshop back at home.

Let me know what you think about video production. Clearly I need to get help on the audio side. Hopefully we’ll get some sailing videos out soon for your entertainment.
