I arrived at the boat on November 10 and began the "putting together" that happens after the "taking apart" in the spring. Airing out, canvas, sails, maintenance projects to get the boat to a stage where it can be launched.
|A rhinoceros bird mistook our cockpit for his outhouse.|
|Our chariot awaits|
|Fridge isn't running so it's dinner at "Ounces."|
|Stuff mostly put away... almost time to launch|
|Murphy the Dinghy ready for launch|
To my great relief, Warren arrived just as we were to launch. Once we were in the water we were able to turn on the fridge so we could have cold beers to cool us down as we continued the readiness activities.
Great to have another body to wrestle things around. George and Mike arrive in a few days and we will quickly get ready to move the boat north.
More to follow...
