Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Just heard back from the marina (I called them again this morning). Everything is ordered, and hopefully will begin moving apace. But there's no chance that she'll be ready by this weekend, which is REALLY frustrating. I had hoped to take advantage of the short workweek next week to move her without using a lot of vacation time.

On the plus side, Sailrite probably won't be shipping the "glass" for my dodger until Wednesday, so at least this buys me a few more days to finish the dodger, and I'll have a chance to do back and do more measurements for a "connector-piece" between the dodger and bimini before I start my trek.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Well put my boat back on her mooring late today.. I ran the engine at near stall rpms there is still allot of junk floating through the mooring field. I think the same tree trunk that was under my boat is still going up and down. I don't know but then they all look alike. and like icebergs.. more is not showing.

Jim,
She's looking good. Thinking positive, at least you've had lots of time getting her in condition to enjoy.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Yeah. I'm already planning what I'm going to do this weekend. I'm going to try to get down there Sunday and hopefully:
a) test-fit the dodger (assuming I'm able to finish it)
b) pattern the piece that will connect the dodger and bimini
c) rebuild the head
d) finish replacing the screens and seals around the opening ports

That's probably all I'll have time for this time. It's tough to get a lot of stuff done with the boat 2.5 hours away from home.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

I leave at about 7:30 AM, and try to be home in time for dinner. That leaves me 4-5 hours. That's a decent amount of time, but it basically limits me to one main project.

Imagine me trying to work on the engine...

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Of our immediate neighbors at our marina, only one is nearby. One is 90 minutes away, the next is 6 hours and the last is 9 hours. The later two from Canada! This is permanent, not waiting for repairs.

Always be grateful for what you have.

Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

Well, river sailing is not so great, and the boat on a mooring next to an active shipping channel with weekend manics zipping up and down is not so great either. But, I can leave my house and be on the water sailing in 30-60 minutes.
