Let’s see, the plan was to be somewhere warm with a cold drink . . .

Winter 13-14

Maybe we can tent camp.

At least we got the boat out of the water!

Our slip at Swan Creek Marina (what was that plan again)

Swan Creek 13-14

Might as well do some winter projects . . . here’s an idea  – let’s rebuild the rudder.

Rudder Removed

and replace the cutlass bearing

oh yeah, and that broken thru-hull

New Seacock

Maybe completely gut and rebuild the head – at some point non-sanitary hoses were installed, note stainless rotting through.

Head Rebuild

out with the old and in with the new . . . bronze is better

Well there’s always beer (Two Stones Pub – more Lot #3 please!)

and an occasional warm day on Main Street Newak

One thought on “2013-2014”

  1. Beautiful boat Don!

    I’ll be saving your website and following your progress toward weighing anchor.
    Incidentally, presuming you’ll be getting underway in 2015, DO keep me posted on your itinerary. I’m envious.

    I sincerely wish you and Bets fair winds and following seas, as we say in the Coast Guard.
