SV Pilgrim - 1979 Morgan 382 - Homeport: Beaufort, NC

SV Pilgrim is in Beaufort, NC!

After one failed shipping contract,  the holiday hiatus on wide load permits, and multiple winter storms, Pilgrim has finally landed in North Carolina.

Pilgrim on Beattie's Transport Trailer
Beattie’s Marine Transport based out of Ohio successfully made the delivery from Sandusky, OH to Beaufort, NC.  

Pilgrim arrived coated in road grime and salt.  Unfortunately another cold front is keeping our temperatures below freezing until Saturday so Pilgrim must wait for a hose down.

In the slings at Wilson & Burbridge Boat Yard
Other than the filth everything appears to have fared well during the 16+ hour road trip.  We have yet to unwrap the mast, but the Tyvek & ductape outer layer appears to have weathered the time and travels well. ( see our Prepping for the Road Post)

We did import some snow from Ohio and West Virginia.  Hope there is no tariffs on snow imports.

The cockpit upon arrival.
I did manage to scoop out the snow enough to access in the interior.  Not finding any damage from the road trip, I quickly become overwhelmed by the notion of where to start?   

Baby steps…  I set up a heater in the cabin and called it a day. Tomorrow, with Anne’s assistance, we will begin by removing the boom, bimini frame, and other hardware from the interior.  Then I can begin a thorough investigation of Pilgrim’s systems.

Baby steps…
