Ah yes, the joys of "taking the plunge"...gotta love it, this living the dream. So far this week...lol...changed out the pooched fresh water
system pump...and then, the forward head
pump needed a rebuild
, was "pissing and puking" past the diaphragm
.....yes, this IS what dreams are made of<grin>Inverter installations, climbing the 65 foot mast
up to the second set of spreaders to install the babystay, but we love it!
Being busy keeps me out of "trouble" so to speak, and increases my maintenance
skills and tool inventory. They now know me by my first name at West Marine
here in Pensacola
, I know where the best deals are in town on bags of ice, the "good" restaurants, closest gas station for the car, and aw heck, the list just goes on and on.
Are we ready to fully depart the dock
...well, not quite yet! Still some systems to learn, the washing
machine works really well, especially when the discharge valves are open in the proper setting, bilge
cleaner cleans the bilge
of urine and other escaped odors from the head pump issue. Playing ping pong with the bowsprit
down the dockage fairway has us considering a bow thruster(no damage to our bowsprit
, dock poles, docks, multi-million dollar boats docked here) hell yeah, this is FUN! I love it!
So much better than sitting at home, maybe still employed at the old salt
mine, working 70 to 80 hours a week, fighting traffic, cold weather
This IS the place to be, you made the right decision, GOOD on ya!
I personally wouldn't trade
it for anything.
