Around 01:00, I was awakened by the sudden, violent movement of the boat in her slip as she was brought up hard against her mooring lines and rolled about 15 degrees to port. There were the sounds of things crashing - both inside and outside the boat - and dock lines squeaking and moaning under the sudden strain. I was instantly out of bed, turning on lights and looking out on deck to see what was going on.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/serenite" hreflang="en">Sérénité</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/103" hreflang="en">Living Aboard</a></div> </div> </div> </article> Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:42:58 +0000 susannecoates 92 at http://susannecoates.net Sunrise Jellyfish Encounter http://susannecoates.net/node/87 <article data-history-node-id="87" role="article" about="/node/87" class="node node--type-geoblog-entry node--view-mode-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/87" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Sunrise Jellyfish Encounter</span> </a> </h2> <footer class="node__meta"> <div class="node__submitted"> Submitted by <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">susannecoates</span></span> on <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 02/28/2017 - 08:10</span> </div> </footer> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-tagline field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Aliens from the Abyss ;-)</div> <div class="field field--name-field-geocoded-location field--type-string-long field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Blogging from</div> <div class="field__item">onboard Sérénité, Back Creek, Annapolis, Maryland, United States, North America</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-latitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Latitude</div> <div class="field__item">38.96820</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-longitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Longitude</div> <div class="field__item">-76.47480</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-altitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Altitude</div> <div content="0.25" class="field__item">0.25 m</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-section-separator field--type-text field--label-hidden field__item"><div class="sectionSeparator"> </div></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>I woke early this morning, made coffee, and went up on deck to enjoy the sunrise. As I was sipping my coffee, watching the ducks swim by and the geese land noisily out on the creek, I looked down and discovered that I was being invaded by Cnidarians - a.k.a. Jellyfish. So, I grabbed the GoPro and started shooting ;-). I don't have a monitor for my action camera as it was not purchased for "point and shoot" use. To get these photos without immersing myself in the 8°C (46°F) water, the GoPro was mounted on the end of a long pole allowing me to stand on the dock.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/serenite" hreflang="en">Sérénité</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/103" hreflang="en">Living Aboard</a></div> </div> </div> </article> Tue, 28 Feb 2017 08:10:51 +0000 susannecoates 87 at http://susannecoates.net Winter Preparations 2 http://susannecoates.net/node/83 <article data-history-node-id="83" role="article" about="/node/83" class="node node--type-geoblog-entry node--view-mode-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/83" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Winter Preparations 2</span> </a> </h2> <footer class="node__meta"> <div class="node__submitted"> Submitted by <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">susannecoates</span></span> on <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 01/08/2017 - 00:30</span> </div> </footer> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-tagline field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Surviving winter aboard - in comfort</div> <div class="field field--name-field-geocoded-location field--type-string-long field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Blogging from</div> <div class="field__item">Onboard Sérénité, Back Creek, Annapolis, Maryland, United States, North America</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-latitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Latitude</div> <div class="field__item">38.96810</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-longitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Longitude</div> <div class="field__item">-76.47470</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-altitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Altitude</div> <div content="0.5" class="field__item">0.50 m</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-section-separator field--type-text field--label-hidden field__item"><div class="sectionSeparator"> </div></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>In the blogpost, <a href="http://susannecoates.net/node/79">Sérénité: Winter Preparations 1</a>, I discussed one of the steps I had taken to minimize heat loss.

The thing to understand is that most sailing yachts are not intended for year-round use and, as such, are not insulated to any great extent. So, the hull gets very cold and the moisture in the warm inside air condenses on the cold surfaces.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/serenite" hreflang="en">Sérénité</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/103" hreflang="en">Living Aboard</a></div> </div> </div> </article> Sun, 08 Jan 2017 00:30:40 +0000 susannecoates 83 at http://susannecoates.net Sérénité: Glowing Toilet Water!? http://susannecoates.net/node/82 <article data-history-node-id="82" role="article" about="/node/82" class="node node--type-geoblog-entry node--view-mode-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/82" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Sérénité: Glowing Toilet Water!?</span> </a> </h2> <footer class="node__meta"> <div class="node__submitted"> Submitted by <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">susannecoates</span></span> on <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 12/21/2016 - 11:09</span> </div> </footer> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-tagline field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Invasion of the Dinoflagellates</div> <div class="field field--name-field-geocoded-location field--type-string-long field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Blogging from</div> <div class="field__item">Onboard Sérénité, Annapolis, Maryland, United States, North America</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-latitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Latitude</div> <div class="field__item">38.96810</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-longitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Longitude</div> <div class="field__item">-76.47470</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-altitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Altitude</div> <div content="0.25" class="field__item">0.25 m</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-section-separator field--type-text field--label-hidden field__item"><div class="sectionSeparator"> </div></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Answered nature's call this morning before sunrise and got a surprise when I flushed - the water glowed! Marine heads flush into holding tanks using water from the ocean, or in my case the Chesapeake Bay. When I pumped the handle the water entering the bowl lit up like a christmas tree. I tried to photograph my glowing bowl, but alas the glow was to faint to be recorded by my camera. After doing a little research I discovered the culprit was the bioluminescent microorganism <em>Noctiluca</em> (latin "Night Light") native to our waters.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/serenite" hreflang="en">Sérénité</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/103" hreflang="en">Living Aboard</a></div> </div> </div> </article> Wed, 21 Dec 2016 11:09:07 +0000 susannecoates 82 at http://susannecoates.net Sérénité: Winter Preparations 1 http://susannecoates.net/node/79 <article data-history-node-id="79" role="article" about="/node/79" class="node node--type-geoblog-entry node--view-mode-teaser"> <h2> <a href="/node/79" rel="bookmark"><span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Sérénité: Winter Preparations 1</span> </a> </h2> <footer class="node__meta"> <div class="node__submitted"> Submitted by <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">susannecoates</span></span> on <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 11/25/2016 - 01:08</span> </div> </footer> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-tagline field--type-string field--label-hidden field__item">Front door Improvements</div> <div class="field field--name-field-geocoded-location field--type-string-long field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Blogging from</div> <div class="field__item">Onboard Sérénité, Annapolis, Maryland, United States, North America</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-latitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Latitude</div> <div class="field__item">38.96820</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-longitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Longitude</div> <div class="field__item">-76.47480</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-altitude field--type-float field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Altitude</div> <div content="0.5" class="field__item">0.50 m</div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-section-separator field--type-text field--label-hidden field__item"><div class="sectionSeparator"> </div></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>After getting the heating system on the boat working with the help of a professional, my attention has turned to minimizing heat loss. The front door of a sailboat is the companionway - a complicated entryway that is designed to keep water out of the boat in rough weather. Unfortunately, it's not really designed with cold weather and energy efficiency in mind. What's needed is a insulated curtain to create a small entry foyer to keep the heated air inside and cold air outside when the companionway is open. So, I pulled out the sewing machine and got busy!
