NOW IT BEGINS January 7, 2013

I hope anyway. I have several major fitting out things to do be for we leave the country. The Life Raft is major. A Pactor is expensive. The wind generator is complicated. Solar panels would be nice. Security bars for the hatches will probably shock me in costs. Hooking up the aft fuel tank, getting them both cleaned and the fuel polished will not be cheep. Did I mention, a bottom job, pulling the mizzen mast, replace it’s VHF antenna, install the wind generator, add at least one block to the top of both mast and spare halyard for each. There are other things on my wish list but the outfitting bucket is near empty.

Then there is the water maker. We decided that would be a big plus, but the mate has to come up with the bucks. That will be interesting.

Then of course there is the regular stuff of the boat wanting to fall apart. It’s going to be a really good year. Pray God keeps us old folks healthy.
