Boat Preparation

Well we are almost ready to add the paint to the hull of the boat after 2 days of hell. We all agree that having to sand the hull of a 42' boat wasn't any fun although we seemed to make a good time of it. Today we were able to put the so called "small generator" in the boat. After hauling the 260# generator from the ground to the top of the boat and placing it into a hole the size of a hope chest with no less than 1mm of excess space, we were somewhat exhausted. Now we are enjoying a salmon dinner cooked with the newly installed grill followed by a few toddies (alcoholic beverages). We have also added a link to track us. If you check it out it say's we are still in Mobile Alabama, and will probably will be for a while.

The start date is getting closer

Well, everybody is getting everything around to take off January 22, 2009 to Mobile, Alabama. We still have a lot of work to do to get things ready on the boat. That is one thing I have learned about sailing through the years. I plan on taking many pictures for people to observe and hopefully enjoy.
