Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Nothing much today. Cleaned the bottom yesterday though. Looks like I will have to go down at least three more times. Good bless the neoprene!

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

You can look at my blog listed in my signature of what I've been up to on my boat lately. I ordered a few other things for working on the boat. I have plenty of time to work on projects until the Coast Guard decides to get my documentation to me (recently bought it) so there's plenty to do.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

We got the final coat of Perfection on the front half of the deck. This has been a 2 year project! It will take 2 more weekends to do the finish coats, and then we will paint the non-skid. Need to take/post some pics.

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

When I'm on the boat, not sailing, my goal is 3 completions per day. Of course some things on the list take years, but 3 small jobs not counting minor cleanups which are always there.

Today : Got fresh diesel,rerouted a galley sink hose (not really "fixed" but necessary to cruise), glued up some split wood that was not holding screws,measured for a job I may do tomorrow ;I just wish that I was more accomplished in these various tasks,but will settle for "good enough" if it means compromising too many other things in life that are important to me (like actually going for a sail).

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Launched this weekend. TWICE!
I really hate leaks. The list is long, but it included painting bottom, polishing hulls, replacing zincs, replacing saildrive gaskets, painting sail drive, painting Props and cones, replacing saildrive oil, replacing engine oil, replacing oil filters, installing 4 new ultimate bilge pump switches, and replacing fuel filters.

I hate leaks!

Re: Did You Work on the Boat ?

Installed the new H20 touch faucet.

Amazon.com: Delta Faucet 9159T-AR-DST Trinsic Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet Featuring Touch2O Technology, Arctic Stainless: Home Improvement

Put the boat's previous touch faucet in the house's kitchen sink.

Amazon.com: Delta 980T-SS-DST Pilar Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O Technology, Stainless: Home Improvement

No room for foot pedals is why we use these.
They're great for saving water when doing dishes.

At first, my wife thought I was being techy and extravagant, but after seeing how convenient it was she suggested moving the original one and getting the new one for the boat.

What a gal !!

This looks very similar to one we have (ours may be Price-Pthister?) we have had it about a yeat and it's great. Lever works well & there is a spray button & stop on the nozzle. My husband is Italian & cooks list of pasta so big pots fit under it. Before we were using smaller pots to fill big ones...and it's pretty.
