Checking out a unique boat….the Endeavor 37 (Plan-A)
Tulum-5 is a veteran sailboat built in the late 70’s and designed to be a performance cruiser doing long bluewater passages. As such, she’s got a fair amount of tankage for water and diesel but she’s just-on-another-level when it comes to dry storage.

Continual improvement and upkeep/updates are needed when you’re cruising on an older boat. Here’s what we did in June to update and improve Tulum 5.
Cruising isn’t just fixing places in exotic places….especially if you don’t have the right parts or tools.

Hauling your boat out for a bottom job and other projects can be seamless and inexpensive or expensive and trying. We’ve just been through haul-out in Mexico….here’s our story.
Non-top upgrades and work on Tulum this month add up to work that was needed and finally getting done.
