Another trip to the Big Boat

Another successfull trip to the big boat !

I did a pretty good "clean and straighten up" day. I took off everything that wasn't fastend down:
at least 20 life jackets
3 throw cushions
2 float pads
2 bags of garbage(junk laying around from repairs)
6 mixed pillows
several pieces of carpet

I sorted 3 different drawers of screws, nuts, bolts, brackets and bits and pieces all into a couple little plastic baskets. They all will have to go someplace, but alot of them look like collected stuff from the years, so no throwing it out till much later.

I cleaned out everything from under both bathroom cupboards and the under the galley sink.

The next trip will include the shop vac and some soapy water and a rag. It has been out of the water and under restoration for several years, lots of dust, dirt, leaves and saw dust.

While I was there I started talking to a guy (big suprise, thats what I do when I am around boats) that was moving some motorcycles around and when I mentioned that was my boat, he said "you bought that boat", I said yes and he went on to tell me how he had a slip next to this one for may years and had alot of great history aboard her. We got on to the fact that he had attempted to buy it from the guy 3 time over the past 12 years, but it just didn't work out.

When he found out the price I paid, he quickly stated "you got the deal of the century" I quickly agreed. He said especially since most of the pain in the ass nasy repairs have already been done, that was music to my ears.

I also took some measurements of the space it will need when it gets here.

More to come, Dean

I have posted 2 new you tubes, one of the interior and the other of the power plant.
