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.

Val,
Your boat does not look in any way like a HMVV. On the other hand, there are certain resemblences to the AAV or Amphibious Assault Vehicle. How many Marines can you embark? (g)

Shack,
Congrats and ditto on that welcome back safely. It's great that you did what you started out to do, not many people can claim that. I hope it all works out for you. Would love the see some pics of the boat.

The wife and I are into our first week living board (with our dog). Not only have we moved aboard but we have move states, new job, and moved the boat over 200 miles in the process after my return from deployment. I'm in the military and we timed this move aboard with a change of station. I'm burning leave before I check into work, and we are currently stocking our boat and getting our systems and communications on-line (in a home-like living status).

We just got back on internet with Verizon's BroadbandAccess. It's good to go! We get 800-1400 KBps. Appears just a a few seconds slower than Roadrunner Cable ISP for high volume down loads. No difference for web surfing. (Again, its GTG!). No shore connection needed, cell signal equals internet access! At $60 per month, I recommend it.
I am not nor is my spouse employed by Verison Wireless or any of their subsidieries

We just had some other liveaboards aboard for beer and snacks and to celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday! Now I sit here in a quiet warm cabin finishing my Guiness and listening to Irish drinking songs while the wife turned in early. More work tomorrow after church.

It has been stressful - all the changes. New city, new living environment, etc. New expectations. Some tense moments between me and the wife where expecations of time and priorities are concerned, but the lager helps. The most helpful are the people around me. I think that I have the most helpful group of liveaboards in the world around us that are assisting us to finish the last (and often most difficult) 10% of all the little challenges that pop up. Its been a great experience so far. Frustrations, concerns, bills, anxieties, etc... But in the greater proportion of it all - it has all been worth it. Its great to be finally living aboard!

Thanks again!
Happy Birthday Marine, Semper Fi

Getting up to speed

Getting more comms up. More insulation in a few key places. Renaming ceremony complete. My rebuild kit just arrived for my head. Horray, horray!! Time to tear into the head.

I'll have to head back to work and re-join the rat race soon. Happy Thanks giving!

As requested, I'll thow a pic on here as soon as I find a way to reduce them to the small 97KB size required for attachments. Is there another way?

Shack-

Don't bother trying to post a photo. Get a flickr.com or photobucket.com account and use the icon to link to a photo hosted there.
