Silent, but Not Idle

Hello out there, I know it’s been awhile since my last post to Pilgrim’s log. I’m not going to attempt to justify or explain my long silence, don’t know if I could.

The silence is not been due to a lack of projects. Although the majority of my project time has been devoted to contract work on other vessels…

And the completion of a 30 month total refit of a early 1980’s custom Brit Chance designed 55’ Sloop

All work and no adventure would certainly a sad Jeff make. Fortunately the opportunity to crew aboard SV Sojoklade for the Beaufort, NC to Miami, FL leg of Rolf’s trip south materialized in late January. While a bit cooler than preferable the opportunity to travel aboard a 1982 M382 and make new friends was irresistible.

Here is a photo album from the trip: Beaufort to Miami Aboard SV Sjokolade - Winter 2016 The opportunity to sail and live aboard an M383 nearly identical to Pilgrim reinforced my belief that we made a good choice of vessel.

We have continued to make progress on Pilgrim’s electrical system, nav station refit, and the rudder modifications. I plan to pen individual updates on our progress in each arena. If you cannot wait, then check out our photo albums for each project.

The albums are in chronological order so new photos appear at the end of the album.

Oh, and did I mention LovettDesigns? No website yet, but I did purchase the domain. I do have a Facebook Page for the business... LovettDesigns Facebook Page. I am now selling some of my fabric and sewing creations as well as offering my services for custom designs and fabrication. My initial retail offering is indoor / outdoor placemats.

New designs and products are coming soon...
