This is about par for last years's almost been a month. My excuse is too much work on the boat and too exhausted to do anything but watch movies. I got the woodwork done where the carpenter bees destroyed it and a lot of the painting done. As I was installing the glass bottom window, I noticed a crack appearing on it. So I took it off and tried to get another made here in Guaymas. Their safety glass is thinner than the one I had made in Rancho Cordova and it made me a little queesy putting in a thinner piece of safety glass the what was in there in the first place. So I decided to get get two of them and put a clear plastic spacer between them. Now they are installed and I kept messing with the regular spacers that keep the pressure on the glass. Tomorrow I will find out if I put the right amount of pressure on the glass. I'm glad that the travel-lift operator is my best friend down here and won't get upset if he has to pull me out of the water if it is not right. After I splash, I will get busy on my mast and boom. I have no idea how long it will take me to paint and and install all the new rigging. Everyone is asking me to organize the Thanksgiving dinner potluck here at the marina. I really wanted to be on my way by Thanksgiving, but as usual, it will be after. The new Walmart and Sam's Club in Guaymas has really changed things around here. There is a new girl in the office, so I have twice the fun as I did with just Ariana. Marlene has lived in Vancouver and has good English skills as she does business skills. The locals celbrate Revolution Day with a big parade down there main street(Aquiles Serdan) and every school and organization in the area participate. I promise to let you all know within a few days if the splash was successful.
