Revised Plans/Spring Work resumes

Keith/warming Spring weather
We did not make it to the Bahamas this fall because we could not get the boat ready. Too much water still ending up in the bilge even though I replaced all the portlights (which took much longer than planned due to changing installation techniques). We plan to remove all the deck hardware and reseal it, Couldn't finish painting or do epoxy work when temperatures drop below 50, so we just walked away from the boat for the winter and traveled to Smokey Mountain area in January, Florida in February, and New Orleans in March.

Now in the spring we are once again getting boat work done. We have added insulation to icebox, installed new sink, completed pressure water system including filtration system, installed radio, repaired the upper gaff boom support, and other smaller projects.

We have added a number of new projects to our to do list and have decided to not set a departure date. We have several major projects to complete, install stove/gas system, make new bimini with solar panels, and possibly make a diy water maker. Also, we have problems I am trying to figure out. The autopilot is not working; and I cannot get the damn head to pump out, which hopefully is nothing major. Yuck!

At times it has been very frustrating, but in the end will be well worth it. Right?
