Day 2 went a little smoother. We have everything put away and organized well for the trip. We got a little then later start today leaving at 8am rather then 7. We will need to work on being better morning people on this journey for sure!
Once underway it was a beautiful morning on the bay, but unfortunately no wind. We gave motor sailing a try for a little while, but ended up pulling in the sails pretty early and motoring.
We pulled into Annapolis around 3:45 or so..refueled and found a mooring ball in the harbor. Quiet night on the boat catching up on work, etc. We both plan on working throughout this journey so we have outfitted the boat with WIFI. Craig did a lot of research and we ultimately chose a Bullet. It’s a high powered WIFI amplifier that you install on the boat and picks up WIFI hotspots within a 7 mile range and rebroadcasts them. We also installed a wireless access point on the boat, essentially making the boat itself a wireless hotspot that we can connect our laptops, iPad’s, phones and internet TV too.
Initially we’ve done a temporary install to test and it’s working fabulously so we will be stopping somewhere to pick up the gear needed for a permanent install in the next few days.
