We're leaving from the Annapolis area and heading down the ditch. My husband wants me to experience the ditch at least once. We'll hang out in Sebastian, FL with friends until February and then we'll cross over to the Bahamas.

Our hope is to be in the Abacos for Spring.

If all goes well and the boat does what she's supposed to do, we'll aim for Europe next summer. But one plan at a time. So far, leaving the dock is proving to be the hardest task, but we're determined. I still have loose ends to tie up from my old life, and hubby has a few minor projects left on his list.

And I'm working on the pictures. Thanks for asking!

Okay - the original interior was covered in this old vinyl burlap textured crap. Underneath was rotted plywood. Egads!!

We do/did not have the kind of money to hire a professional to redo the interior, so we had to make do with our budget and resources, without going cheesy. I'm very pleased with the results!

The cushions look dirty, but they're not - something with the camera.

George bought teak plywood and enclosed that empty space above the settees and installed smoked plexiglass sliders. Now it's functional! I merely sanded and varnished.

The original Fuller Brush Co. ports were improperly installed and leaked. We bought all new ports (couldn't afford the bronze unfortunately) and George installed them and had to tear off and sand down all the rotted plywood. THAT was a project from hell.

The stove is a brand new 3 burner gimballed lpg Seaward that fell off a Boater's World truck and was warped. We got it when the store was closing out for about $200. George loosened all of the bolts, stretched everything out with a ?? (can't remember what it's called - kinda like a jack) and then tightened everything back up. It's not warped anymore.

Why the giraffe skin accent? Because we never want to take ourselves too seriously. hahaha!!!

Pictures on website

We have our blog up and running with lots of pics and boat specs...and misadventures.

We're currently in the Abacos, and Marquesa is a champ. We were anchored out in Fox Town with only one other boat - a Freedom 33 Cat Ketch. Synchronicity?

Sweet. I've been in and around Marsh Harbor, by plane and ferry. Great area, nice people. I've got the boat and plan to be along in a few years.

Yeah but you can't tow it with a station wagon and it won't fit in a one car garage.

That's okay. We don't have a garage, nor do we own a station wagon.
