Friends & Patient Adversaries,
Splash day is here! Watching paint
dry for 5 days is enough. Outta here. Peace and quiet will return to CF. You're on you own grasshoppers. Your over-posting geek-egotist switches to sporadic mode.
In the last eleven days on the hard
, the odd blister filled, faired rudder
, cleaned every locker, rewired entire nav station, wired SSB
for MacBook, polished topsides, removed redundant antennas, got new FCC callsign, registered 3 EPIRBS, installed MacENC and new chart subscriptions.
All that while posting
relentlessly on CF, plus:
Tossed out 300 kilos of useless cruiser junk: WX fax, 1000W inverter
, shore power
system, 155% genoa
cars, 30m rusted chain, redundant anchors, 5th and 6th table settings, propane
bottles, dead electronics
gizmos, cans of ptomaine veggies, rusted tools, towels for the 5th thru the 30th visitor (what was she thinking?), and the old spare docklines (does one need spare docklines?), all the instruction manuals
for stuff long gone.
All that and 99% success in closing the hatches for every squall.
Practiced guitar, updated the blog, worked on my curry skilz, grocery shopping
, recon prowl of every local chandelry, propane
fill, crashed local YC party, cleaned the bilge
and pumps, repaired galley
Only one thing on the to-do list (kinda kidding):
Buy and add distilled water
for the old-school batteries, oops, forgot they were not all AGM
Later, miss you already, I remain,
