Ship of the desert...interim stop at Elephant Butte Lake

A ship of the desert arrives in the mountain lake setting of Elephant Butte Lake, here for some fitting out and sail testing some time during the next few weeks.

View aft, toward the south with Turtleback Mountain and Caballo Peak behind our Hobie, to be named "Bruja".

One of today's chores was getting our (new to us) Hobie away from the house and down to Elephant Butte Lake. I also paid slip rent for Carol Anne's Etchells, "Black Magic" for the coming marina year at Rock Canyon Marina. Soon we'll need to make time to rig the Hobie and then work on outfitting her (need to order VHF fixed mount station and various other gear) and learning to sail "Bruja".

Are you following any of the variously rituals/liturgies which are prescribed in order to forestall bad luck in renaming vessels? (I would prefer to remain oblivious to them, myself.)

Can't wait to see photos of this beauty, Bruja, under sail and competing! Until then, it will look at home in a slip next to an Etchells.
