Well, the boats are both still there. Thank goodness we got Sanctuary winterized when we did. Shortly after, the geriatric deck-hand fell on the ice in the cockpit and a week later was nursing a bad-back.

The good news is, Sanctuary is officially ours and the U.S. Coast Guard says so - almost eight months of paper-work, several resubmissions and a half a thousand bucks and the ownership trail of our ODay seems to be straight and properly documented again, finally - yeah;
