Charleston to Provincetown via the Gulfstream

We’re back in Provincetown for another fun sailing season! We’ve completed lot’s of big projects, brought on an awesome new captain, and had a successful offshore passage from Charleston, SC to Newport, RI, then on to Provincetown, MA. After we tied up all the lingering loose ends, particularly a never ending paint job, we were…

Charleston Check-list

If you have been following Facebook or Instagram, we spent our winter dock-side doing ALOT of work. This is the reality when we are not in charter mode. Moment now being 37 years old certainly takes a little extra nip and tuck to keep her looking fresher than spry teenage yachts. For starters, we needed…

Migration: Provincetown to Charleston

Goal: Get Moment to Deltaville, Virginia by 10/2 for maintenance and to Charleston by 11/1 to nestle into our winter slip (or sleep? something much needed after such a busy sailing season in Provincetown!). Out of the gate, we were delayed a week by Tropical Storm Jose in Provincetown. After all of our storm prep…

While You’re in There

Over the summer, we discovered that our tranny (“tranny” is short for transmission … what were you thinking?) was leaking into the engine bilge. After review by a specialist, we learned that as long as we kept topping off fluid, all would be well until we were able to haul the boat and remove the…

It’s for the Kids Too!

We had so many lovely types of groups on the boat this summer—friends, couples, proposals, and even a wedding! Let’s focus on one special group that we saw more of this year than ever before—the kiddos!

Storm Prep for Boats

This season’s weather has been exceptionally crazy. We began this spring and early summer with storms and that is exactly how we wrapped up the summer / early fall. Once our last charter was complete instead of casting off the mooring for southern waters, we had to make storm preparations for Jose, which was headed…

Sail, Sail, Maintain

It’s been a very busy summer with a lot of wear and tear on Moment! Our last maintenance matter left you with the Screech and Squeal event. While we thought it was a simple belt tension issue, much more came to light shortly there after. Awesome, right? After reviewing and testing, we deduced that the…

Stay in the Shades

We’re always on the look out for great fashion options on and off the water that are good looking and complement the sailing lifestyle. What’s the one item that gets worn every day of sailing? Shades… Sunglasses… Eye wear… Call them what you may, but they are essential. With the rigors of sailing, there are…

The Wedding Planner

It was early Spring and we received an inquiry about a wedding aboard Moment. How exciting and flattering to have a couple choose us to celebrate their special day – and it would be the first one! The event would be super low key as the couple – two lovely women from Texas – wanted it to…
