I'll keep this thread updated now that I know yall are watching! I'd probably keep this more up to date than my blog. That requires more thoughtful typing and a laptop which I sold /:

ps. is your plan to have it berthed in new orleans or always florida?
Thanks for the compliments! The decks I was planning on going with MarineDeck 2000 or similar. I like the cork, it is what they use on cruise ships, or so they say, so can't be too bad. Plus, it's supposedly easier to lay than teak and doesn't use fasteners, though it looks similar. I will keep these decks for probably a year or so, I know I'll need new rigging next year or so, definitely before the Isla Mujeres race in '16.

Well it'll be in the NOLA area for a while until I get her ready to sail to some distance. I'd like to make a trip to the keys by next year's end. I think it's doable.

Long run, Florida looks nice definitely... Pretty water. No state income tax! Haha!

Thanks, she is a wide girl too! Drafts 7', I'll know more when I get home this time. I want to measure the keel to the painted waterline, we moved it from where the PO had it. And measure the air draft when I step the mast.

Yea man! She's looking pretty now, new seacocks, engine is installed, new shaft, new wheel, pedestal should be in the mail soon.. Redid the engine room and lazerette , changed valves on water tanks, refit the fuel tank lids and added mechanical level indicators.. A few other things, closed up some holes on the hull and added one for a transducer.. Cleaned up the deck partner and rebedded the aluminum ring that sits on deck where the mast goes through.. New portlights on the side.

Other little things, thanks for asking! Couldn't get her in the water last time I was home and I'm offshore now. But hoping in Dec she'll finally see water after being parched for almost a year!

Also, she's renamed now, Redemption, and the lettering was but one a few days after I got back and that's super exciting because it came out great!
