Projects Completed! New Grill!
Our Scuba compressor installation is now completed. Mike and Derrick from Morehead Marine Services did a great job. The compressor is a 220V unit, and we wanted a dedicated 220V power source for the compressor. The compressor will run off power directly from our 13.5 Kw generator. The compressor will live in our cockpit locker, […]
By Linda As we get closer to untying the lines to head south, we have to start thinking provisions. We will have limited access to supplies once we get to the Bahamas. Also, we know that everything in the Bahamas costs much more than here in the US. Anytime you are shopping on an island, […]
New Radar and Scuba Compressor Arrive
Today was a busy day on Ocean Song. Linda went to her mom’s house yesterday and brought her and her stepdad, Charlie, to see the boat for the first time today. They arrived in Beaufort around 11:30 while I was helping (mostly watching) the guys from Morehead Marine install our new radar unit. Our old […]
Almost Ready for Scuba Diving
Our scuba tanks have been delivered. We had them tested and filled at Olympus Dive Center in Morehead City, thank you Mike Muller. We also have our hookah kits. Of course, we have had dive suits, BCDs, etc., for many years. The final piece of equipment we need to make Ocean Song a self-sufficient dive […]
Passing Time in Beaufort, NC
By Jim: As we tick off the last few items on our “liveaboards’ To Do List”, we’re enjoying Beaufort. Although we’ve been to Beaufort dozens of times over the years (and I’ve been coming here since childhood) we’ve made lots of new discoveries. We have taken lots of walks admiring the beautiful historic homes, found […]
We Made Fresh Water!
Yesterday was a big day on Ocean Song. We used our Cruise RO water maker to transform seawater into fresh, potable water for the first time! We had the water maker installed in Annapolis late, last October. After brief, initial testing we “pickled” the water maker. We didn’t have need to use it in the […]
How We Got Here
By Jim: The last week has been a whirlwind for Linda and me. I officially retired from the District Attorney’s Office for Chatham and Orange Counties after more than 32 years. My successor, Jeff Nieman, took his oath of office on Monday, January 2nd. He will do a great job and take the office into […]
Chesapeake VA to Beaufort NC
After spending more than 18 months in the Chesapeake Bay we have moved Ocean Song to Beaufort, NC. Ocean Song was berthed at Blue Water Yachting Center in Hampton, Va. the first year in the Chesapeake. Since then she has been berthed at Bay Point Marina in Norfolk, Va. Ocean Song also spent close to […]
