Stephen, we need a little adventure around here! After our little trip, we now have fixed many things and have geared up for our first "sail." The goal is to get out and test out each sail later this week. I'll keep my fingers crossed that our fine weather continues--good wind, sunny and in the low 60's during the days. Nice sailing weather.
So many little details to deal with! The bilge pumps switches have been set to as low as possible, the freeing ports on the foredeck are now in, the faulty port seal fixed...several key bits of running rigging have been installed and a major repair/modification made to the fore boom. Lots of little things happening.
Peter, thanks for your offer--I'd not expect anyone besides David and I to put up with our sparse living conditions! You wouldn't want to be here if you only knew
