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.

The work has begun.
May/9/2012

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.
It is soon to be the first long holiday of the Canadian summer, known as may two-four and while our sailing vessel is spending her summer in the San Blas islands of Panama, Steve and I are knee deep in work commissioning the sailing vessel Stormy Night, a Cal 2-46 sloop.

We are sitting aboard our summer yacht (for this summer anyway) Killarney Mountain Lodges "Stormy Night" and it's been one heck of a 11 days!
Work! Well, as you all know that's a four letter word! and as I told our son Mike, not many people can do what your dad does. He just looks at stuff and fixes it .. I don't now how!
As far as Stormy Night, I've begun to clean this boat from hull to ceilings and it's coming along nicely.

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!

Stormy Night
April/30/2012, Killarney, Ontario Canada

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.

In the photo we have Betty, Jack, Steve and I.
I was the last to sit down in the great room, and after opening up my computer, I looked around and thought it too funny and asked to take this photo. Now this is OUR Modern Day Family, enjoying some quality time together!
