Small Projects--Significant Improvements

Adjustments to Instruments
During our month-long sailing trip, I had a lot of difficulty reading water depth annotations on my chart plotter--particularly black lettering on a dark blue background. As I found out (through the help of Fred Street on the C&C List), I can greatly reduce the amount of dark blue area by adjusting the "safety contour" (from it's existing setting of 66 feet) to 7 feet. Now, there is an additional lighter shade of blue between the dark blue areas (7 feet deep and under) and the deeper areas (in white).
|The small adjustment in "safety contour" made an enormous difference in |
readability. Now, if I simply stay clear of the dark blue areas (7 foot
depth and under), everything should be good.
Several Lifestyle Improvements
New Bahamas Courtesy Flag
|I still have my old Bahamas courtesy flag from my trip during the winter |
of 1991/2 but it is somewhat beaten up and 23 years old. So, I
purchased a new one for our upcoming trip.
