Morpheus was designed by Carl Schumacher, built by Davie Norris Boatbuilders in New Zealand and launched in 2002. She spent her first 18 months cruising the South Pacific before reaching her home port of San Francisco. Since that time, Morpheus has been raced and cruised extensively. This blog will document her ongoing adventures.
All grocery provisioning complete after four trips to the grocery store.

Heading back to Barbuda now to watch the weather and will head north at first opportunity.
We now have more projects rather than less.
Once again no progress on the heater.
The newest and most urgent project will be repairing a small hole in the high pressure inflatable floor of our dinghy. I dropped the newly refilled propane canister into the dinghy. It bounced once and then landed with the only semi sharp corner down and “pop” the floor had a hole in it. This really is urgent since the dinghy is our “taxi” that takes us everywhere and carries all our stuff to the beach, or town, or another boat. The “high pressure” nature of the floor may make this more difficult than most repairs.
Not much to report
Low pressure systems continue to leave the Carolinas heading northeast across our intended path.
