Tour of Pacific Ocean Crossing Sailboat – SV Dolce –


Welcome aboard Dolce 1968 Alberg 30 Here we have Avon our little tender that can also be emergency inflated in case of disaster not our only life raft, but one of two Here we have our wind vane The wind vane is actually not in there right now, but this is our self steering device the cape horn, which will be great to Give ourselves a rest from holding the tiller and steering the boat. It’s a pretty interesting system, which I will explain later And we have our solar panels here 150 and 160 watt solar panel. Umm going to two marine batteries This here is the tiller Which connects to the rudder which steers the boat and here is the cockpit We have the mainsail here on the boom that’s wrapped up and it’s cover right now The main sheet comes down here, we’re in the cockpit and you have your jib sheets on either side a bunch of storage Moving forward We have the Dodger which basically does what you would expect it to is helps you to dodge from the weather, rain etc Here in this blue dry bag here We have a life raft, which is going to be an interesting struggle to get out in case of an emergency But at least we know what’s in there We’re probably enough to cut this dry bag loose in order to get at it Which we’ll manage to do in case of an emergency I’ll move it forward here. I’ve got these things here on the side called lifelines help you from falling in this blue strap here is where we will tether into When we’re moving forward and getting to deal with sails or lines that are caught or any any reason we need to go forward We’ll strap our tether onto this Hopefully it will prevent us from being swept overboard This is the jib We have two anchors in right now because there was some gale warnings in the anchorage were in earlier two anchors are better than one and Over there is San Francisco As we are in Richardson Bay or Sausalito Harbor Sausalito is right over there
