Plopping Lady Faith in should be done sooner, rather than later...so you can get some experience in on her.
LOL! I'm not laughing at you but I can relate. We are from the midwest, our season is 6 months if you stretch it. Every Fall when the boat comes out, my wife sits me down and hands me a list. She than explains it to me like this: We go on our cruise in November (Cruise Ship for a long weekend), than the Holidays; Thanksgiving and Christmas, we start working on the boat again in March. That leaves you January and February for the list.
She is a very smart girl and she knows the routine.
Than anything I need help with in the summer, I hire my daughter's boyfriend.
He is painting the basement today!
Your time will come.
