Project GoldiLocks: MISSION IMPOSSIBLE or JUST RIGHT?

In hindsight we should have started blogging about this over two years ago when we made the decision to make the transition from sail to voyaging under power as we have so much to catch up on now.  Some would call this “going over to the dark side” though we have never thought of it that way, and to make matters worse/better soon thereafter we decided to design and build a new boat.  This would likely result in a consensus amongst most family and friends that we have truly lost our minds this time, but that’s also not the way…

Canadian Kissin’ Cousins??

Last month I put up a post “Newest Member of this Family of Passage Makers” about the newest members of Dennis’ Artnautica LRC58 line of boats, the LRC58-3 “Britt” and LRC58-4 “Raw” which have both been launched and are now at sea as will be joined by LRC58-5 being built in the Netherlands.  My larger comment and purpose for that post, and for this one, is to highlight the rapid growth of a whole new style and type of long, skinny ocean crossing passage makers which are most often designed to be owned and operated by a couple with no…

Tech Talk: XPM78 Möbius Electrical System Overview

This is the first of the Tech Talk style of articles I promised in THIS previous posting. Many of you have been asking for a more in depth and technical look at the What, Why and How of all the various major systems required for an XPM boat such as Möbius. And not to worry, I will continue to do the weekly progress updates and then as my time permits, I will also post these Tech Talks for a bit of a change of pace and a different look at these boats.

It is Christine’s Birthday today, Happy Birthday my Beautiful Young Bride!  So I snuck away early Friday afternoon and we drove East from Antalya along the coat to the beautiful old town of Alanya and have a fabulous room up at the top of a hill in an old castle with a view out over the original Red Tower and the inner harbour.  Here is a quick panorama shot to give you and idea of this fabulous old city or Alanya.But not to worry, I’ll do my best to make sure this week’s Möbius progress update posting WILL happen before…

Missing in Action but NOT Progress: Weekly Möbius Update Aug.19-23, 2019

Christine and I are in Italy for a combined anniversary celebration in Napoli last weekend and now a chance to catch up with dear friends on their catamaran as we sail around the island of Sardinia.  While I may be MIA the rest of Team Möbius, the ones who really matter, were hard at work back in Antalya and they made great progress in all the various facets of work from cabinetry to electrical, plumbing and aluminium.  When the cat’s away the mice really do play!  So with great thanks to our Möbius Project Manager Yiğit for taking on extra…

Relevance: 10%      Posted on: August 23, 2020

For those who might not have seen or remember the line from the movie “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”, this week’s title is in reference to the tag line in that film where the homesick little Extra-Terrestrial kept asking “E.T. Go Home?”.  Unlike Spielberg my little friend Mr. Gee is definately not imaginary but he has been asking me the same question for a very long time now; “Mr. Gee Go Home?”.  So it was a very special day on Monday this week when I got to grant Mr. Gee his wish and move him into his new home inside XPM78-01 Möbius.While…

First week of the year and we have 2020 off to a great start with all the progress on Möbius this week.  I just got back from taking Christine out to the airport this morning as she flies back to Florida to finish her 100 Ton Captains License testing and start her year off right with the gift of some Gramma time as well as seeing family and friends in the Fort Lauderdale area.  And of course she left with four empty suitcases to fill up with the latest flurry of parts and equipment to bring back with her when…
