July 2007 was the last entry...time flies

Ok just to catch up, finished the bowsprit, installed rewired windlass with a new handheld controller (not working out well in cases where two hands are needed to tail line off the rope drum), installed: a Monitor windvane, lazyjacks, rope clutches, removable padeyes for tying our dingy to the foredeck whilst on passages, new stereo system with inside and outside speakers, cleaned our fuel tank (tank looks good-whew!), Racor dual fuel filters, fuel polish system, 2000 watt sine wave inverter, and a whole load of the usual boat maintanence stuff.

We were going to leave this summer, but the admiral said she wasn't ready. Ok by me, it would have been a real strain.

Still have quite a list of things to do. Should start taking pics and writing up the process. We'll see......
