In general we've been busy as hell. On the home front I completed the installation of the new windlass. While we were at it we retired our old chain and replaced it with 200 feet of squeaky clean 3/8s inch galvanized chain.
This week was the big sale at Bay Ridge Liquors. Every thing in the store is 1 dollar over cost so its worth it to do a little binge shopping. As usual we arrived early, each grabbed our own cart and went a-gathering. Christy picked up 86 litres of boxed wine while I grabbed 22 handles of rum. Not bad for opening day. With so much of our adult beverage needs met on the first day Christy soloed the second day. She picked up another 50 litres of wine and 6 handles of rum. We should be set. I hope. If not there might be an issue.
I'm in the midst of making new dinghy chaps.
At work I’ve recently had an interesting couple of jobs. This catamaran had an electrolosis issue. Yes, in the photo you can see completely through his saildrive.
While I’m on the subject of catamarans. This is another of those Nautitech Cats where the helmsman is sitting out practically on the sugar scoop exposed to the elements.
On the monohull front I got to install a watermaker on a 51 foot Passport Yacht. It is a modular unit but all of the components fit nicely under the vee berth. The guys owned and lived on the boat for about a year and I couldn't believe that there was a space this large in a liveaboard that didn't have anything in it.
