More Pre-Launch Work
Came out this afternoon to do a few repairs. Fixed the sail tie cupboard door which we had secured with a bungee cord for half the season last year. Took off the old swim ladder support, and will need to do some more work plugging those holes and find a replacement ladder for the one we lost two years ago (I really miss being able to dive off the boat and swim around). I picked up some hardware at West Marine and Torreson's to fix the forward cleats and to also fix the ignition cover. Put up a set of curtain rods over one of the windows (would have put up another, but the stupid package I got from wallmart was missing some hardware). Felt like I didn't get much accomplished, but it is very hard to do a lot of the projects single-handed. The brightwork is looking real sad, and I'd like to get out there one of these days and really devote some elbow grease to cleaning that up. The interior could use a good cleaning and painting job. Really looks kind of dumpy now after that nice boat down in the Virgins, but like they say, 'there's no place like home'.
