Boat Logo & Card

Boat cards have been around for a long time.  It is a way to stay connected with those you meet along the journey.   Many boats have boat stamps, too.   Because I love to design, I decided to draw up a new Mahi fish boat design for our boat cards, that could also work as a boat stamp, too:

mahiartfinal

Notice I have our boat name, hailing port and website worked into the overall design.  I like this fish better than some of my others I have drawn.  I will have to color the mahi fish, but until then, I thought it easier to do a quick background color added instead.

Now to order a black and white boat stamp, and some S/V Mahi boat cards to hand out to other cruisers.

On other boat news, been cleaning the bilges, a rather dirty job.  More cleaning tomorrow, too.  I am doing the final boat cleaning in prep for provisioning.  Just finished cleaning under the settee in the main salon, lexantoo, also the storage compartments today.  Joe is busy with other jobs.  We also have those crazed side windows removed and a woodworker is busy getting the damaged wood around them redone.  Monday, I meet with the wood restorer, and the company to recertify our fire extinguishers on board the boat, including an auto system in the engine compartment.

Also went to a post Thanksgiving Day party here in Ft. Lauderdale.  Met lots of yachties, or former yachties who have moved on to other jobs.  Ft. Lauderdale is megayacht central, so it is easy to meet boat captains and crew while in town.

Next post- Visit home to CA!!  Yes, one last quick trip home to CA to take care of business before setting off for the Bahamas just after the new year.     Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

      Getting excited! Every day is packed with jobs, lists, and things to do. Today I will order the cards from Moo.com and then find a company to do my stamp. Thank you!

    We made boat cards early on and have found them invaluable for making and keeping sailing connections. We don’t have a custom logo yet but we will for our next card printing.
    You’re looks great!

        Last year we had a five year plan and we’ve moved it up to four years so it doesn’t stay a five year plan forever.
        My husband had a business that he can run remotely. We are planning some island hopping and also a tour of the east coast up to Maine.
        We probably won’t do the loop because you have to remove the mast, but you never know.

        Until we cruise, we’re absorbing all the cruising and sailing into that we can!
