Pairadice is heading South

After finally getting everything finished and the boat stocked we are ready to leave Portland tomorrow.
The major items that needed to be completed are below;
1) Complete service of main, transmission, generator.
2) Completed the install of new Summit fridge.
3) Repair/resurface of interior/exterior teak.
4) Service water maker.
5) Inspection and repainting of ground tackle.
6) Cut and wax outside.
7) Two short shakedown cruise’s to verify all systems are go.
8) Several shopping trips for food, consumables, spare parts.

We are heading down the pacific coast and plan to cruise very slowly south doing day runs for the most part. We have no set schedule and plan to only travel on very good weather days. Wont be entering Mexico until November with fairly long stops in San Francisco, Ventura, LA and San Diego.

We hope to spend the winter months cruising the Sea of Cortez before hauling out at Puerto Panasco or San Carlos/Guaymas for hurricane season and yard work.

I will try and give updates as long as we have internet. Please follow our journey here as well as the blog.

Cheers all, and look forward to meeting up with fellow TFer’s along the way, the TF Burgee will be flying off the bow.

That looks like an apartment refrigerator. It'll never work on a boat. Hope you're enjoying yours as much as I'm enjoying mine.

Spent 3 days in La Paz, Mexico boat shopping in 2014. Did two half day cruises in the Sea of Cortez, wonderful! If you stop in La Paz, two words:

Scallop Tacos

Beware Pt. Conception, nasty spot. I used to spend a lot of time on work survey boats in the area, & never had a time when there wasn't a distress call from a yacht. Many HUGE ships have gone down there, so give it a wide berth & mind the weather closely.

We paint the first 50’ and last 50’ all white. Then every 25’ we paint orange, at 100’ And 200’ its painted orange/white. This is our system and we have seen plenty of other cruisers with there own system. Choose what works for you.
Not a big fan of the zip tie’s or colored plugs, hard to see those from inside the pilot house.

Can’t believe the anchor crowd hasn’t chimed in on the merits of our primary yet. LOL

Thanks for the concern, but this ain’t our first rodeo.

Today’s weather outside of the Columbia Bar, 3’ primary swell at 18 seconds, wind is 4 knots, just the kind of weather we love.

Were a few days from crossing the bar, we get to stop over at ASD’s dock for a nice weather window and good bar crossing time.

Mike and Tina,

No plans to return, you two are gonna have to come see us, it ain’t that far from the AZ house. Maybe next summer we can hook up. We will probably make a few trips to Mexico by car, and most likely we will be traveling through Phoenix, Ya never know.

Cheers Friends!

If you two happen to be headed toward Phoenix in the winter months drop me a text, PM or msg on TF. You have a place to stay if you come to visit.

Left Portland this AM at 11, stopped in St. Helens and topped off the fuel. 300 plus gals @ $2.75 a gal. Met up with fellow TFer’s on there Selene 53 and they wanted to tag along for a bit. We are tied up to Tom & Kays (ASD) dock with the other Selene side tied.
Tom your dock has never seen such class! LOL

Pic’s tomorrow for sure.

We passed you yesterday as you were leaving the Walker Island channel.

Safe travels!

We winter in Mulege, so I'll be looking for your boat when you get up to Bahia de Conception.

Crusty,

Let me know when you hit La Paz, I'll buy you a beer. You are going to LOVE the Sea of Cortez!

Cheers, Bill
