The Perfect wife..mine is...seriously

So, as you may (or not) know, today was my birthday...thanks thanks...

Anyway..my wife told me that today I should go get some sailing (which I could not, but because I had stuff to do)....and I spent the end of the afternoon home with my boys...she had gone to the hair dresser..

Finally as she had planned, we were to go out wit the kids and have a quiet dinner all 4 of us...

So we went to our favorite restaurant (TDW and Joel/Jayme know him, Sr. Joao..aka onion burner as I call him)....

when we go there, I had a surprize party dinner with over 35 close friends...I received a lot of presents...my wife had asked me what I wanted...I said an Ipod touch....that I would buy in the US next week...

So halfway thru the dinner I see 2 large boxes being carried....

and was told they were Giulietta' Fred and Luis's birthday presents to me (I had received a few other things when I woke up, so I was all done)..both boxes very well wrapped in a nice paper..

The first box was big and this is what it looked like..



I thought I had received another humidor...boy...was I wrong!!!!

Bvut wait,...the box looks like a humidor..and a big one too...

THEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't believe..she bought me a RADAR!!!
And she knew I wanted Raymarine, too (everything else is from ray )



She had sent Fred very very smoothly with me to check which screen I wanted,

So...the second box was this...








She had asked him to see which one I wanted..IN SEPTEMBER!!!!!! when we decided to go to Madeira next year, because I said we needed one..

I wanted the C70..for size and other reasons, not important now...


By the way..check the birthaday cake she had made for me!!

How cool is my wife??



TOTALLY VERY VERY COOL..BEST WIFE IN THE WORLD...THANK YOU GOD!!!!

REALLY....

PS..I will sometime, annoy some of you with questions....because I never had a radar..they are heavy..but mainly my questions are with the best connection system etc...I am not very good with electronics

In January the boat is going back to the builder to have a CF stern pole built in...by Delmar Conde

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Happy Birthday Alex.

Giu...nice day for you!
But why don't you just get an arch...I mean now that you are becoming a cruiser with Bimini and Dodger and Radar...can a solar stik and a wind generator, and dingy davits be far behind? Asa consession to speed you can build the arch out of CF.

First: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Second, if there a line to rent your wife for such occasions? I have a birthday coming in February and that would be a GREAT gift.

Seriously, Happy Birthday!

OK.I have a question..can that radome thing be installed so it can be easily removed if I need to?

maybe remove the whole pole? My question is not so much for the mechanical part, but for the wires.
Thanks
