Autumn Borne Cruising

CSY-44 Antigua - Hull 001

Time with the Dailey's and Boat projects

08 December 2017 | Vero Beach FL -
I think I posted yesterday about dinner, and time with the Dailey's (Donna, and Mike - s/v "MOJO")... They now live in Vero Beach, in a land home.
Dinner was great... and of course all the conversations that occured that evening....(WED.). We love their remodeled kitchen.... What a tremendous job they did on that area. Unfortunately, we forgot to take pictures....(insert unhappy face here)...
SO............ I dug back in the archives and at least retrieved one pic of the four of us... (PIC attached).

Yesterday, I spent the morning replacing a critical piece of the waste system in the aft cabin head. (insert Yucky face here)... but it all worked out great. We now have a working head again. BUT... in working in such a tight space, beneath the bathroom counter, I leaned against the teak door for the cabinet, and broke the bottom hinge. Damn! I knew it was corroding, and weak, but I thought "I'll never find matching hinges here in Vero Beach.... But I rode up to the WM on the bus, with Susan, Marylou, and Tom (Dalmatian)... they went ON to the MALL... But luck was with me at the WM.... They ACTUALLY HAD two of the PERKO hinges hanging on the wall... Wow !!!!
LUCKY !!!!

So today, we'll have a complete aft head again... .Yeah !!!

It's also time to do OIL changes on both engines (Perkins, and Northern Lights)... and in general clean-up the vessel.... each project brings "chaos" to the general living areas... because whatever area YOU'RE working in...the "stuff" has to be moved into a "non-working" area... which is usually the living space for the spouse.

This has been short sleeve shirt weather for days here.... I guess there's a cold front sinking in tomorrow, and Sunday... BRRR

OK time for cruisers net...(SSB-HF radio). more later.
