Some pic's of Stormy.. fruits of our labour
The forward head is still plumbed without a Y-valve and pumps directly overboard and therefore access was not available. Previously, the skippers kept quests from entering by shutting the door. The toilet was stuffed with rags and the bathroom sink not connected. Steve and I decided to make the bathroom serviceable as an extra bathroom for washing hands or an area to comfort someone if they should become seasick. So, Steve found and installed newer faucets, we removed the toilet seat, found a piece of wood, cut it to shape, finished with stain and formed an extra seating area .. Voila!

Stormy Night is now tied up at her KML dock. This is a view from her deck looking out towards Squaw Island, Georgian Bay.

Looking across Killarney channel my heart melts at the sight of George Island, with it's whispering pines and rock face, an image similar to one of the paintings from the group of seven, but there is something amiss. Our 'Lion's Paw' is not anchored nearby and we are alone, without family or friends.
We had a mild winter and a warm spring. The boat was sealed very well and we are told that the cover is usually blown off and found lying on the ground each winter. this did not happen and unfortunately it seems the boat was sealed too well.. bring out the gloves and vinegar!
This will be our little cabin for the summer. It is situated on the grounds of Killarney Mountain Lodge and faces Killarney Channel and George Island.

Steve and I are enjoying the evening, snuggled in our very own cabin overlooking Killarney channel, located in the small town of Killarney, claimed to be the oldest town in Northern Ontario, population 300. Tomorrow we unwrap our summer sailing vessel, Killarney Mountain Lodge's "Stormy Night". She's a 1974 - 46 ft Cal - a sloop rigged sailing vessel... and the adventure begins.
