So this is Christmas. . .
I'm looking forward to a good Winter refilling the boat fund. There are some design and outfitting choices to make; perhaps some stainless steel parts to order. As soon as the snow melts in the Spring, I'll be back doing some interior work and waiting for the Sun.
The big projects for Spring/Summer are finishing off the space where I removed the pilot berth, replacing the chainplates, re-installing the seacocks, and replacing the two large aft ports on each side of the cabin.
