My Home Away From Home for the Next Week

473-1

A few people have asked what kind of boat we’ll be on when we’re down in the British Virgin Islands next week. We’ve chartered a 46-foot Oceanus 473 through Sunsail. (Translation: It’s 16 feet longer than the boat we regularly sail here on Lake Michigan. Yikes!)

473-2

There’s a full kitchen aboard, with fridge, freezer and oven, and three heads (bathrooms) with showers. It should fit our crew of six quite nicely.

473-3

We’ll have an inflatable dinghy with an outboard motor for getting to-and-from shore and there’s swimming platform off the back.

473-4

When I look at this photo, I realize how much bigger this boat is than anything I’ve ever crewed on and I get a little freaked out–but it’s a good, excited kind of freaked out.
