Where did it all come from? Unpacking 8 ½ years of living aboard
20 May 2014 | Bradenton, FLorida
We arrived in Bradenton just over two weeks ago and we have been working pretty much non stop. I took two and a half days off to drive to the east coast of Florida to see my parents while Hunter continued the work of preparing the boat for sale and removing our stuff.
The boat is in great shape, but we did want to get another coat of varnish on the toe rail, eyebrow, handrail and in the cockpit. The big job is removing our stuff while living on the boat and doing little clean up jobs. We still have to eat, wear clothing and use tools and it seems much of what we need is in our storage unit. We have shown to boat three times and so far none of lookers said "I must have that boat", but all were impressed with the condition and outfitting.
The water line has risen a few inches as we remove our personal possessions.
