Well, those of you that are cruisers know that, anytime you "slip the lines" and head out on the water for any length of time, there is a lot of work and preparation that goes beforehand. (booooo!) Quiet back there! Anyway, why should I let you guys miss out on all the fun?

Right now, the Norma Fay (named for my late Mother for those who wondered) is still sitting on a cradle in the yard at Racine Riverside Marine. So far, she has undergone a complete "bottom-job" courtesy of the amazing service staff at Racine Riverside. (Thank you Mark, Randy, Tom, Brad, etc)

This included soda-blasting the hull, repairing small defects and then multiple coats of barrier paint. Then, I bumbled in and put on two coats of anti-fouling paint and buffed and waxed the hull above the water line. She looks like a debutante on her way to the ball!

She should be ready to go back in the water in the next week or so. In the mean time, I'm busy playing my last dozen or so shows with the Boat Drunks and selling nearly everything I own in preparation for moving aboard in early July.

My estimated departure date is around August 1st. Stay tuned!

The pic is an old one of me at the helm four years ago. I will be posting new ones soon, thanks to my friends Sherri and Rich and some others for buying me a new digital camera! How cool is that?!?
