The refit continues

09 June 2011 | Milwaukee
The refit is almost complete, well actually, a boat is usually always a work in progress, but we will have her as ready to go as we can for now. We will be adding solar and wind power generation sometime in the near future. We are still waiting for our new house battery bank to come in. It seems the factory had some equipment fail that seals them, which caused the delay, but should be shipping them tomorrow. If all goes well, she should go in the water late next week. Lori is getting antsy to get out on the water.

The refit

We are in the middle of a refit and are hoping the majority of it will be complete by the beginning of June. Once complete we will splash her and sail up to Port Washington, WI.

Lori and I both grew up in Wisconsin. As we aged, the cold winter's took their toll and it became more likely that we would be heading south. Living on a boat has always been my dream growing up as I have been on boats and the water all of my life. [...]
Extra: Lori enjoy's being & is a fine galley slave already, which is a plus.
