I was going to call this "You Might Be A Live Aboard If you're Boat's a Nautical Oddity" since my new "float home" would fit either of the two referenced threads.
I had expected to spend this summer cruising on Honeysuckle but I made a new album this winter and figured I'd put enough into that I owed it to myself to try and get it out there, which pretty much means embracing some city for a while. Victoria may not be the best choice from that point of view but it is lovely and manageable and I've bought a nautical oddity to live on while I do.
I'll keep Honeysuckle where she is and come up and sail as much as I can get away. Hopefully a lot!
So here is Casa Miga:
She looks rather lovely in this shot, which is six years old. She was built in 1975 and while she is unlikely to take me anywhere does have a bilge
keel! She needs some TLC but I got a great deal and I'm looking forward to it.
Honeysuckle got a lot of attention this winter include a bottom up rebuild
of her engine
. You don't want to know what that cost. Hopefully she'll go a ways now without needing anything major. The studio will be packed away, as will the furniture for awhile.
