Project Morning Star started with a simple concept - a promise to myself to finish all my major projects before I went cruising leaving me free but like any boat owner, with only maintenance to do.

Well like pressure washing a house it turned out I could not just upgrade a part of my boat and the long list of upgrades went from one end of the boat to the other - nothing was spared.

I am not done, however I am now done enough to leave having kept my promise. While rich on handyman talent many projects were not cheap - first I had to work to pay for them and then I had to work to install them.

I relished in the joy of having just one project done - I dared not look too far forward. I can kick back with a tall glass of rum and now look back with a big, not a big, a mucho enchilada big sigh.
