Busy, productive weekend

Home this weekend working on this and that. Before I left Newport
Friday, I finished hooking up the new battery charger and It's now
merrily charging both of our expanded battery banks. Found a sweet
spot just inside the engine room door to mount the new terminal
strips. Very accessible.

At home I built the doors for the clothes lockers, a new teak paper
towel holder, glued up the bottom step (aka battery box top), a new
dorade for AirHead ventilation, a the spigot for a new engine
compartment access hatch. Have to take it back to the boat to make
sure everything fits before I build the hatch itself. Lulu finished
sewing up covers for our 4 spare diesel jerry jugs, the autopilot,
the Honda generator, and the little outboard motor. I brought the
other half of the V-berth mattress home so she got to try out the
custom sheets and quilt she made. Fit beautifully. Now we'll have a
real bed instead of a mattress with sleeping bags. This past week
she also did some painting for me. Today she managed to figure out
the Froli mattress system and put it together.

Tomorrow I have to get some papers notarized and then make a trip to
the transfer station to get rid of old paint, motor oil, compute
monitor etc. Going to head to the boat tomorrow afternoon or evening
so I can jump right in to projects first thing Tuesday morning.

The to-do list is looking less daunting by the day although we
definitely can't afford to let up at all.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
