Hello Dear Readers,
I hope November has been good to you so far!
There has been progress on many fronts leading up to Pam's arrival on my 70th birthday, November 9th.
Left North Sound solo on Thursday, November 3.
|Bye bye North Sound|
|Well hello Jolly Harbout|
Landing at JH was fun. I radioed ahead that I was coming in solo and would need someone to help with the lines. The Dockmaster said he was working alone so good luck with that. Got in near the docks and dropped Murphy the Dinghy so he wasn't in the way to back into the dock. While I was doing that the Dockmaster found a yard worker and dropped him on the boat to throw lines. So we backed in, tied up and Bob's your uncle. Uncle Bob!
Headed over to the Epicurean Grocery Store and bought essentials for lunch.
|Fried chicken, sauerkraut and beer!!! Mmmmmmm|
Hooked up to power, turned on the AC and set about installing all the new parts to make Blue Pearl whole again!
Cleaned out the battery compartment and hooked in the new Victron Lynx power distributor. Don't even get me going on this lovely unit. Also, built a brilliant new battery box for the new starter battery near the engine.
|Clean and shiny and most of these wires disappear|
|Lynx Power Distributor. This is a beast!|
|New starter battery box.|
|Got the propane repaired so I can make dinner!|
|New starter battery in place|
And then, when I didn't think it could get any better... Pam arrived at JH November 9th. In time to celebrate my 50th birthday! Whoop, whoop. What a great day! Did I say 50th? Will check the calendar.
