Heading North !

[The first of the Liz's letters home from our passage north]

Greetings!

If you have been watching our Predictwind tracker, you will see that we finally made it out of Majuro Atoll after a bit of a false start. If you have been watching it closely, you might have noticed that we seem to be stumbling erratically. We have actually been sailing a surprisingly straight line but we think we might have jammed our Iridium GO GPS with some of the silver insulation we put into Fluenta's ceiling in preparation for the cold weather ahead. Once again, those 'secondary effects' have made themselves known, and rectifying this is now 'on the list'.

We were later than expected clearing customs on Tuesday: when I went to the office on Monday, the agent and I set a time of 1pm the following afternoon for him to come to the dock to stamp us out, but I found myself on Island time ... waiting until 4pm! He was very apologetic when he finally showed up, but given that this was the longest period during which I had 'just sat' since we arrived in Majuro in early April, that my provisions were being labeled and stowed by two teenaged elves onboard Fluenta, and that there was a steady stream of cruisers coming and going at the dock to chat with, it wasn't an unpleasant afternoon!

Accompanied by the sound of horns from a neighbouring boat, we slipped our lines a couple of hours later, and headed out to the moorings five miles away at Enemonet, where we had spent such a good time with the other kid boats over Easter. This late in the season, we pretty much had our pick of the moorings, and tied up just as the light was fading. After an evening and a day spent stowing provisions, we raised our mainsail and slipped quietly off the mooring just around 5pm Wednesday, with time to head through the pass before sunset. As I was taking 'one last photo' to post with our remaining internet, I was vaguely aware that all was not well in the cockpit. When I gave the situation my full attention, I found Max and Johnathan wrestling with the genoa furler: it was jammed, and the only option was to return to our mooring and have a look at it. At that moment, we had no way of knowing whether it needed a slight adjustment or a mail-order of new parts (which would have pretty much put a wrench in all our Alaska plans), so we simply ate an early dinner (mac & cheese, a popular passage-making first meal) and called it a night.

By 7am the next day, we had the genoa out on the deck, had hoisted Max up the forestay once to ease the head of the sail over a protruding set screw (easily tightened with a 3mm allen key at anchor, but much more difficult to deal with at sea), and had calls into the manufacturer and to our preferred rigger in NZ (Thanks Rob at NSR). Then began the waiting game, as we gave our contacts time to consider our situation. We couldn't really replicate the issue, and when he turned the furling drum, Max didn't notice any grinding or binding. The bearing seals seemed in good condition. We had noticed when we took the sail down that the halyard tension was less than normal, which would have put more of the weight of the sail on the bearings, but we didn't know if this would have been enough to cause our problem. Finally, by mid-afternoon, the calls had been returned, the heads had been scratched, and we were building a consensus that the furling unit was probably fine. We put the sail back up (once again hoisting Max aloft to ease the sail over a slight mis-alignment in the extrusions, with Victoria on the halyard winch, Johnathan at the foot of the sail easing it up the track and myself on the main winch controlling Max's elevation; Benjamin's contribution was to keep out of the way!). We made sure there was plenty of tension on the halyard, eased it in and out a number of times without incident, and decided that it was time to head North!.

It took several days into a relatively uneventful passage for everyone to get their sealegs back. We have spent the last two months on our mooring in Majuro working night and day to effect repairs and improvements in preparation for our trip, so our bodies complained a bit at the constant movement of being at sea (despite the relatively benign conditions!). We celebrated our escape from the 'gravitational field' of Majuro with our first bag of "milestone chips" once we were out of the pass and truly on our way. (In the Maritimes people eat "storm chips" when they are storm-stayed at home with bad weather; we eat 'Milestone chips' when we have something to celebrate ... I have bought bags and bags of chips in preparation for this passage!)

Our wind generator self-destructed on our return to Majuro back in April, so we have been listening to the sound of our gas generator pretty much once every day. The first charge controller we received from our supplier seemed to have a fault that kept us from making power so we had them send us another one. Just in case there was an issue with it as well, we agreed with their suggestion to include a basic rectifier. When the second charge controller didn't work in our system, it was the rectifier that we finally installed. It is a little more manual of a system (eg we have to shut it down with the big brake switch if the wind goes over 27 kts or the wind generator will overheat) but otherwise it is working fine. Coupled with our water-towed generator, which we deployed for the first time in a couple of years, we were pretty much holding our own power-wise on this passage, and we could leave our gas generator snuggly tied in its place on the back deck.

For once, our course was not hard upwind, so Fluenta has been speeding along. Victoria has been a constant daytime presence in the cockpit, while Johnathan has been on 'Benjamin duty' downstairs. We have decided to 'pull over' in Rongerik (an atoll near the very north of the Marshall Islands) to make a few repairs (including a leaking window gasket that lets in just enough water over the starboard bench to make its occupant feel like they are in the cockpit and some rigging issues) and to wait for a good weather window to set out on the remaining distance to Alaska. To create a daylight entrance into the pass, we have had to slow our speed significantly (ie from over 7 kts to 3.5 kts). Even with a small main and miniscule headsail, Fluenta was still determined to move at 5 kts through the water, so we forereached back and forth in front of the western pass (and in the lee of the island) to wait for daylight.

We arrived in the Rongerik lagoon mid-morning on Sunday, and transitted the 7nm across the pass without incident. If we were coming back, we would time our arrival even later in the day, as the bombies were hard to see in the morning sunshine. Thank goodness for satellite imagery and bluetooth headsets!

We are pretty much alone here at Rongerik: the island is uninhabited by people. We have, however, seen dolphins, flocks of curious boobies and other sea birds, and even a shark, which was rude enough to hook itself on our lure as we came in through the pass! We had been hoping for a tuna for dinner, but we got quite a surprise when Max pulled the line near enough to the boat for us to see his catch - it was a little reef shark, which we had to very bravely cut loose by holding it steady and cutting the ring that held the hook to the lure. Max asked whether I wanted to lift or cut, and I was pretty quick to volunteer to lift! I held it steady near the toerail, and he got close to the teeth with his side cutters to cut away the hook. Thankfully, the shark seemed to be 'playing dead' and it didn't fight at all once we got it out of the water. There was no weight to the creature, and it swam away very quickly once we cut it loose. Hopefully it won't try that kind of bright green & yellow 'Halco fish' again!

For now, we will rest, repair, and enjoy the last of the tropical scenery before we head North towards Alaska.

All is well on board.

Love to all,
Elizabeth

Preparing for a Month at Sea - Onward towards Alaska

It is a long way to Alaska and our path will be longer than the red line shown due our usual crazy zig-zagging with the weather.
As you likely picked up from our previous blog posts, Fluenta and her crew are intending to leave shortly for Alaska.  Expected landfall is Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands. The distance down the rhumb line is about 3000 nm but being on sailboat we rarely travel in a straight line.  Depending on the winds we are estimating a passage time of about one month.  On our way north we may stop at an atoll to check over the various repairs and adjustments we have made.

The last, very long, blog post talked about the maintenance we have done over the last little while.  Of course, other preparations like victualing - embarking food - are important too.

Loading up with food for longer adventures is not new to Fluenta but any cold weather sailing seems in the distant past.  I did not even own any shoes - other than flipflops - until yesterday.  Not to worry, we have been on a mail order frenzy for warm clothes and everybody is kitted out with new layers including some awesome merino wool clothing.  I am sure you will see pictures of the new gear in use when we get back into internet land on the other side.

After six weeks in the same location the kids built quite the climbing gym.  Unfortunately it had to come down if we are going to actually use the sails.

Lightening up the load on Fluenta - Giving some books to the local library.  As five bookworms we somehow collect a lot of books.

and more load lightening.  One of two deliveries to the Canvasback Wellness Centre.

and loading up with diesel.  Lots of heavy diesel.   Getting less expensive diesel at a roadside fuel station rather than the overpriced fuel at the dock.

At the scenic dock. In total Johnathan and I hauled 23 jerry cans of diesel over four trips.

Lots of food onboard for the expected month at sea plus a big amount for "contingencies".  Here Liz has canned some meat.

As we have done for the last few years, we will usually post update on how we are doing, weather conditions, fishing report etc to Yachts in Transit daily on passage.  Our page on Yachts in Transit is here.

The Fluenta page on Yachts in Transit.  We try to update this daily on passage.
We also intend to blog more frequently while on passage.  Everything is transmitted over our Iridium Go so lots of text but no pictures.  You can also track our progress with the map at the top of the blog page.  It is updated automatically by Predictwind and, if you click the "settings gear" in the top left of the map you can see the forecast weather at our location.   With a change in Facebook policies we can no longer post directly to Facebook so you will have to check on the blog to see what we are up to.

The normal tracking map you see at the top of every SV Fluenta blog post courtesy of Predictwind's magic.

and if you select the "Gear" button shown circled in red in this picture, you can see Predictwind's forecast for our location.

As in previous years, a reminder that if you notice that the tracking is not working please do not revert to "panic stations".  There are all sorts of technical and operator issues that could cause the systems to not work.  If we do have an actual emergency we will activate the EPIRB(s) and PLB(s), use the SOS buttons on the Iridium Handheld or Go and/or call RCC directly.

Sigh ... not many tropical sunsets left for us.

More Adventures in Maintenance - A Summary of the Last 12 Months


at the sunset of our travels ... another maintenance period ...
The saying goes that cruising is maintenance in exotic locations.  There is certainly a lot more to it than, that but the truth is that there is a considerable amount of maintenance to keep any boat - old, new, sail, power - operating.  Add in the fact that we live aboard as a family full time and that we cover a considerable number of miles every year (and it seems like the miles are rarely downwind in the trades) there is lots to keep up with.

We had two main maintenance periods this year: an unplanned but productive one in Fiji, and our recent one here in the Marshall Islands.

The Fiji haulout was precipitated by finding that one of our thru-hulls was ever so slightly weeping.  We were over in the NE side of Fiji in Savusavu preparing to head north to the Marshall Islands so instead we sailed (two days) over to the west side of Fiji to haulout at Vuda Marina.  There we replaced most of the thruhulls that had not been replaced the previous year in New Zealand.  Since we were out of the water anyway, and expecting to cover lots of miles to get to BC, we also redid the anti-fouling and serviced the Maxprop.  We wrote it about is here:  Scheduled Birthday & Unscheduled Haulout

December -  living the glamorous cruising life in the boatyard in Fiji.

The Majuro maintenance period has been focused on preparing the boat for Alaska:

  • Catching up on rebedding deck fittings that have shown any slightest evidence of leaking.  Rebedding involves removing the old, usually metal, fitting from the deck, cleaning all the surfaces, and reinstalling the fitting with fresh adhesive.  This sounds easy, and it normally is, but the complication is that all the fittings are "thru-bolted" so that someone needs to access the nuts on the inside of the boat during the installation and re-installation.  Gaining this access means storage areas need to emptied and cabinetry removed.  You can imagine that this was lots of fun while we were still living onboard!  Often the bolts get mangled in the process, so we replaced most of the fasteners as we went.  I should have bought stock in "Ace Hardware" as I spent a lot of time there buying bolts, washers and nuts.  In fact, it appears that I have bought every 1/4" nut in Majuro!
  • Adding insulation to much of the boat and Hydrovent matting under the mattresses.
  • Adding a heat exchanger to the heater coolant loop so that we can use the engine to heat the boat and make hot water.  Thank you Sure Marine for all the help.  More to follow in a separate blog post on the heater project. 
  • Running the heating system to the front of the boat by running another 40' feet of hose and electrical wire, and drilling numerous new holes for them to run through.
  • Ensuring all the preventative maintenance is done to reduce dramas on the long passage north, including doing all the scheduled engine maintenance, even if it is early according to the schedule.
  • Days and days and days of re-stitching seams and sticking patches on our sails
  • Rebuilding our wind generator, whose charge controller died and then caused the rotor to overspeed, melting much of the wiring.  We spent a fortune on a shiny new charge controller that after hours of troubleshooting we found out was defective.  We now are using a simple bridge rectifier to connect our three phase wind generator to the 12 V DC circuit.
  • Troubleshooting, and eventually replacing the solenoid on, our autopilot (including flushing and replacing all the fluid) after it locked up while we were crossing the Majuro lagoon. 

It was rather exciting when the autopilot refused to disengage as we arrived into Majuro in January.  We replaced the solenoid and then a few months later it failed again.  Turns out the hydraulic fluid had developed its own ecosystem in the heat despite being less than two years old.  A fun job in Ailuk to flush the system out.  We bought out the entire stock of the appropriate hydraulic fluid that was available in Majuro !

Expanding the heater to the front of the boat.  Another 40' of heater hose installed while we were in Ailuk.

The temporary control panel for the heater system.  The controls are now mounted on a proper panel alongside the Webasto heater controls.
Liz up the mast sewing the leach of the genoa.  After a few hours we realised we needed to drop the sail and do it on deck instead.

Sewing the edge of the genoa back on deck (over a month later when the winds finally dropped).  Johnathan was a big help, and sewing is a great activity for one-on-one conversations!


Liz modeling her new Woolx shirt - and repairing the main.  There wasn't much of a seat close by, so she's perched on a jerry can with a little bit of insulation for a cushion.


Johnathan is quite a competent sail repairer.

Some long days ... using the Speedy Stitcher to repari the bimini.


Victoria adding a Dyneema chafe guard to one of our spinnaker halyards.

It was a whole-crew effort to replace the mast track insert - I went up the mast, Victoria fed it in at the base and Liz & Johnathan operated the winch.  Benjamin supervised himself out of the way.  Thank you Pompanette for the quick work getting us the replacement.


Melted wind generator wires.

Mostly replaced wind generator wiring (although I was not able to get the correct new brushes - I did get shipped the incorrect brush assembly though but that was not much help)

The old wind generator charge controller was likely the cause factor in the demise of the wind generator's wiring so we had a very expensive replacement shipped in.  Mounting it was interesting as it is slightly bigger so we needed to move where two of the solar charge controllers were located.  Then it turned out that the new charge controller was defective so we are just using a simple bridge rectified instead.


And then the rebedding ...  We were suspicious that this window was leaking a bit at sea.  Taking it out took an entire day followed by several days to repair the fiberglass before installing the window again.

Johnathan passing up another window to remount.  The adhesive - 3M 4000UV - gets everywhere.

More rebedding and winch maintenance.

and more rebedding ...

This photo got lots of attention on Facebook as this is how Liz spent Mothers Day.  Rebedding more deck hardware.

Beefing up one of the deck boxes after we found some dry rot.  Nothing a bit of epoxy cannot fix.

Johnathan taking apart the outboard's carburetor. 

and servicing his grandmother's old sewing machine.

and Benjamin helping by controlling the reverse switch.
Victoria trying to progress grade 10 while we still have internet despite the chaos around her.

Benjamin too is looking forward to the maintenance period being done.
Somehow despite working pretty relentlessly on this Majuro work period it has taken about six weeks.  That is a lot of rebedding ... It is getting hotter here - it is 30C (86F) by 0900 and the sea temperature is over 30C (86F) so it does not cool off much.

As we have done at regular intervals, please find below an output from our maintenance spreadsheet.  I have cleaned the data up a little and added colour codes showing whether is was an improvement, scheduled or other preventative maintenance or corrective maintenance (i.e. something broke).
