A night on the hook

Last night was our first night on Loomba-Loomba at anchor.  The new mattress is great, the new diesel heater kept us warm, and the windlass pulled the anchor up - just as planned!

Now Everything Needs to Be Installed!

We've made many of the major purchases  - see side bar.  Now Jim's full time job is installations. We are heading to the boat yard again in May to install the windvane, another through-hull for the future watermaker, permanently fix the rudder stops, check the bottom and through hulls and put another coat of bottom paint on, do some engine work, and finish installing the electronics and electrical stuff (new batteries, solar panels, etc.).

Chrissy is busy packing things up and getting the house ready for new tenants, the garage apartment ready to move into, and the boat stuff gathered, organized and ready to put on the boat when most of the installations are done.

After the boatyard we are hoping to be able to slow down and spend June and July sailing and doing last minute details.

I don't have any new boat pictures, but will post some when I do.
