2 posts in one week? It is a miracle!

Yes, I can't believe it either! I managed to head to the lake for a few hours before I have to go back on call for work.... I managed to get the folding prop off though.  I really hated not having reverse on the boat and decided to put the 3 blade that also came with the boat on for the season.  I would like the fixed prop on anyways for cruising. 
I also managed to get the tailgate positioned but my hinges that I was going to use are not long enough... denied ....I am afraid to use the original hinges because they aren't robust enough to stand on.  Back to the internet!

It has Been a while...

Well, as the title says we haven't posted in a while.  We have been busy though, I promise! Emily and I have been moving ourselves and all the boat parts into our new temporary home. We leave for Florida next week for our wedding Hopefully things will go back to normal and we can really make some ground on boat projects. We also gained a new sailing companion. Emily found Boo At our marina and he has been a great crew member. His specialties include being hyper, attacking anything that moves, and functioning as our onboard garbage disposal.  Watch your fingers...he likes tuna.

I was fortunate to go on a sailing excursion with author and sailor John Kretschmer to the Bahamas and back. He even talked me into going on he and his wife's French canal boat trip in July for our late honeymoon.  Lots going on.  Lots to do.  But I am excited what the future will bring.  Everyday puts us closer to running south.
