Re: Last Night at the Harvard Club

FYI.... the boat and delivery crew should be arriving in Boston Harbor at approximately 6:00 pm this evening!

We will take them to the North End to celebrate with some Italian food, and put them on a plane tomorrow at noon.

Then... we can move onboard. :-) And with that, we will have nearly completely "recuperated" from last summers' disaster.

Re: Last Night at the Harvard Club

Hey Doug, beautiful boat. which post # has the picture album? I missed it.

Congratulations on your new boat. Sorry you had to go through what you did to get here.

Sure wish I had the means to get into what you just bought. However, I'm enjoying immensely my little 23-foot Sundance. Makes me joyous just thinking about her, and I didn't want to leave her this morning to head to work. Looking for a live aboard situation in the next few years.

Thank you! If you click on my profile / name, it will bring you to a picture album here on Sailnet.

On Fridays I have the great pleasure of "working from home" doing my computer programming job. :-)

I can well understand your love of your boat.... I think most of us have that disease. :-)

Re: Last Night at the Harvard Club

In a very bad way. Thinking of buying a Catalina 27 tall rig in December. Thinking hard about it. Then, I'll have two boats.

"Invalid Album specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator" was the message I got when I clicked on your albums created link.

Re: Last Night at the Harvard Club

Our first weekend onboard surely was a messy one... first moving onboard while the boat is at a mooring was more of a challenge than the usual "moving day" for people. However, the guy running the launch was amenable to filling his boat to the rails, and then all the passing of boxes, etc. Not to mention the "bell hop" from Boston Harbor Hotel that helped transfer all those items from a van to the dock; 2 loads of 2 carts, in almost 90 degree heat.

Both were tipped well.. :-)

Then, we found the boat was out of water; the water maker high pressure pump is not working, and after we tied up to a dock and stole 300 gallons of water, we learned that the delivery crew had apparently allowed the water pump to run dry for too long, which ruined the "stator", i.e., an impeller type part.

And, we learned that the toilets only run from fresh water!!!! How sick is that!? So, we can't take showers, or flush a toilet.

The air conditioners are dysfunctional, the refrigerator and the freezer are likewise dysfunctional; and without water, obviously the washer & dryer are out of the picture.

The delivery crew left the main halyard at the top of the mast; and the spinnaker pole hoist is stick on a block half way up the main, so the pole is embarrassingly askew.

We have been relocating all the things onboard, besides what we brought onboard, since the previous owners barely ever used her, and hadn't at all for the last few years, her various parts were in the weirdest of places.

Anyway, happy Monday!

Today I'll be ordering 2 new FrigoBoat systems, and a stator for the water pump to be delivered ASAP.
