April, 2016. No date as it will be weather dependent.
16 months to finish my projects, and save cash.
I think the boat is coming along nicely, and most of my projects now are for comfort, and cosmetics. Been painting the masts, finishing the calking, planning a new bimini.

Sails are going to the loft one by one, we will be having one spare sail made new and fresh as a backup. The last few safety projects are rigging thru-hull bolts, new packing glands, new thru hulls, and a bottom job.

Our first stop should be New york, so we can say goodbye to family before we leave, also 1200 outside miles should be a nice shakedown to make sure everything is working as intended.

Setting a date is great.

It makes the dream suddenly a real,planned reality. It also gives focus and a timeline for all those boat jobs.

Fair winds and following seas and best of luck with all the projects.

thanks guys, your correct Chall.
It seems like yesterday I bought a boat that leaked from every deck joint when it rained, and the table was a swimming pool. Nice to see an end to the work.

End to all the work? NAH! Now the fun part begins, but believe me, the work NEVER ends. You just do a lot less of it at one time.

All the best,

Gary :cool:
your right, meant to say bulk of the work :p
