This blog chronicles the adventures of the sailing vessel Moonraker. We just finished the second year of our cruising life. We explored the US East Coast from Maine to Florida, the Bahamas, Haiti, PR, and the Virgin Islands.
Progress putting the boat back together

Finally the rigging is back in place and Bill is working on getting the interior cabinets installed again. He's been bringing pieces home to varnish them and it's starting to look like a boat again. Everything is still a total mess of course, but forward progress is important.

Besides putting the cabinetry back in, he is also working on installing the watermaker. So far we've had three different ideas of where to install it. Luckily the current thinking takes it out of my berth!

My job is working on the house - but I'm struggling with that. We have so much stuff - what am I going to do with it all??
