S/V Hello World's Travel Log

blog updates by boat

Hey all, we finally (*finally*) got our single side-band radio, high frequency modem, serial-to-USB converter, laptop, and Airmail software to converge in some semblance of a working condition. Which means we can send email from our boat just about anywhere our boat is. Which means blog updates will likely happen much quicker than they have in the past.

A caveat: this system relies on a shaky chain of dependencies any one of which is very very likely to fail. So if you don't hear updates from us, please don't assume the worst. Assume that we broke something. Or that its just too nice out for us to be farting around on the computer.

Hey there Christy and Jason! We're fellow Caliber 40 owners from Seattle (Kirkland, actually). Got your story from old friend Tim Williams who met you while painting his boat's bottom at Seaview. Our boat, Tasman, is in Grenada (SE Caribbean)now, after leaving Seattle 2 years ago almost to the day. I'll drop you an e-mail with more scoop.
