Leg 2 – Shediac to Halifax

Captain’s Log

Engine hours = 106.5.

Not as many as Leg 1 but we switched gears. We are more cruising driven than destination driven.

Distance travelled = 576.5nm.

37 days
15.6 miles per day

Fuel = 342.4 l

That is about 3.2 liters per hour or .7 imp gal/hr.


All systems worked flawlessly.


Well it has been very hard for this fresh water sailor to adjust to salt water sailor.  Salt gets everywhere and rust appears where we never saw rust before More maintenance!!  Anyone have any suggestions on how to combat this rust.


We hope you are enjoying this blog.  Blogging is a lot of work.  The Admiral takes the photos and writes the blog while I try to do the formatting.  WordPress is not an easy program.  The Admiral and I have some of our best discussions about the blog.


As you all know maintenance never ends.  You just make it part of your daily routine.


Thus far it has cost about $75.00 per day.  This includes everything right down to the occasional ice cream.

  1. Witnessed first hand the blog formatting discussions, interesting…. scary…..

    1. Monica

      You can be honest. You know the Admiral hasn’t figured out WordPress yet or she would be doing it all and there would be no discussions/entertainment 🙂


  2. We’re enjoying your blog updates. I’d like to see at least 1/day please.

    The only solution to your rust issues lies ahead of you, in NY City. Turn right. Ascend the Hudson River and on to Lake Ontario.


  3. Keep up the good work!!!!

    There are some really fantastic photos but I especially like the ones of the little cutie. Adorable!!!!
