Workin' Hard

This week has found us coating on the layers of varnish on all of our freshly sanded teak. It is so amazing the difference it makes. I keep telling Anastasia that she is a sexy boat now...with all of her shiny varnish and all!

We are starting to put her back together too. We have remounted the jug boards and put the jerry jugs in their place with the new covers. They look smashing! So much less obtrusive and now protected from damaging UV.

We put the dodger back on and that is quite a change. We have spent a few months without it and now we are having to re-learn ducking our heads to go below. Trust me, it will not take long considering the alternative of not ducking.

We have three gallons of exciting bottom paint to slather on in the next few days. We hope to splash on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week! It has been a long summer at 12' above sea level.

We have a new tiller pilot that Maxwell and my Dad have been installing. It attaches to our windvane to steer the boat when we are motoring. We plan to link it with the chart plotter so it keeps our course too. Yippie!

All in all we are pretty ready to go. Go where? I can't remember if I have said or not...to Bermuda of course! We can leave as soon as Nov. 5th, weather permitting.

There is still much land-life stuff to do like sell our truck and set up "while you are away" things...just loose ends. We are furiously tying!
