We have spent the two months since we arrived back in Florida working on getting our Island Gypsy 32 ready to cruise. This season we will do the Florida Mini Loop, a 700+ mile tour of southern Florida from the Okeechobee Waterway down. We will include all three Florida National Parks; Everglades, Dry Tortugas and Biscayne. Hopefully we will also add the Abacos and Berry Islands of the Bahamas.
We leave this wonderful dock on Friday, put our car in storage and head to Ft Meyers for Thanksgiving. Christmas will be celebrated in Key West.
Here are some pictures of our work and as always many more in the 'Gallery'.
Grey weathered teak
Original seats and heavy curtains
Dull teak and old refrigerator
This floor needs love and the glass rack is wasting space
Adding a hard bimini
Solar panel installation
Giving the teak some love
Folding table to be used in or out
Looking so much better
Five coats of varnish on the floor, three coats on cabinets, new refrigerator, new cushions, mini blinds, and a handy basket where the glass rack was.
Of course there are things you cannot se like the new water heater, battery charger, battery bank etc.
