Hard to even believe there might be any projects given the excellent care and attention this Frances has received prior to my ownership. I believe I am the 10th in a good line of stewards. I pray I don’t muck it up!
I’ve now had three overnight outings in Little Bird. Two short trips originated from Regent Point Marina on the Rappahannock River where the boat was recently hauled. We sailed to the Corrotoman River and later to Carters Creek. On the sail home we ducked into Horn Harbor. Perhaps more on those later.
So, projects, or better, additions. I’ve installed a Noco 2 bank battery charger. Chickadee burned through 2 Powermania chargers in short order. The company has since closed its doors. Wonder why? This Noco unit claims to be waterproof and “smart”. An identical unit was lastly used in Chickadee and seemed to deliver. So, here we are again. Good so far. It’s tucked up in the starboard quarter berth out of the way, but easily readable.
Also, I put another USB plug where a hole once was inside the companionway. Perhaps a vulnerable location, but like I said “hole”.
Otherwise, we’re making efforts to bring aboard only gear we need. The tool bag did start out slim, but it is getting thicker. Projects!

Always liked the Frances 26! Beauty and I like name Little Bird as a few of my boats have bird in the name. Anyway, mothership for Nov. cruise?
Hey Greg, long sail there, but no doubt more comfort than UNA’s bilge. See you then.
Like I said……. That looks pretty “Classic” to me! Beautiful!!
I can’t claim anything to do with it. The previous owner loves boats, an affliction.
You just had to have a bigger bowsprit than mine?

E who’s roller furling ?
Harken my friend. Seems to do fine.
Funny funny boy !
Just inquiring. There’s many opinions on them when researching at Annapolis boat show couple years ago?
Beautiful boat Eddie
Thank you. We’ll have to go for a sail soon.
I’ve had a Profurl before. Liked it. Never a hassle.
