I have taken LOTS of Photos;

Here is when I first saw her in June 2010;
1st Impressions

Then, after I made an offer on her and had her surveyed. Note that the keel bolts FAILED the survey; Survey 1

Then, after the keel was repaired on the hard (now with a different surveyor); Survey 2

Third "survey" - at the dock (I have yet to find a surveyor that's worth $20/foot); Survey 3

Finally, SOME of the stuff that I have fixed;Refit

As to what's going on in each of the photos - poke through some of my other posts to get the stories.

centaursailor Great job on the boat, and welcome back to curse of the working classes.
Bíodh misneach agat, and enjoy the fruits of all your labours, I find a good day on the water puts everything into perspective.
The well deserved scorn of hardier SNers also helped when I whinged on line about the fecked up weather her on the Emerald Isle recently.

Safe sailing

tomandchris Hey, a boat, a job, and not a relocation. Think about it, the offer might have been a great job in Nebraska. A great state for football, not so much for sailing.

arf145 Looks like we've got the "hey it could be way worse" covered. So, I'll commiserate on the confluence of your boat curve vs your job curve. But I gotta think that having a job will help replenish your stock of 100 dollar bills that sailboats require to keep going.

Nice job on your O'Day!
