Yes, I did he pretty much got it into traveling condition (still lots of finish carpentry to do) and took off for the Keys around October last year. I was down there in my trawler and met up with them for lunch in March. A couple of weeks ago they left the keys and are now heading up the East Coast for summer on the Chesapeake.
I have a camp in Cocodrie so pass through Chauvin often on the way there from Thibodaux. Is your boat in the bayou now? I'd like to take a look at the project if you let me know when you'll be down there sometime I'll try to stop by. What size is it?
If you email me at
stwillett at aol.com I'll send you the link to the Boelits, Lorenzo and Joyce, the folks with the converted trawler the MV Eileen Farrell. and the blog of their trip.
