Friday April 25th. Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow.

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

I worked a good part of the day on the boat. It was the first time that I got a chance to familiarize myself with my new home. On the first short visits I tended to be preoccupied by missing the familiar layout I had become so attached to in the 33 years with “Fleetwood”. But today I kept finding features that are definitely better thought out. And the boat is structurally in better condition and has had a lot less wear and tear than my old boat. I am very pleased and I, and friends and family I expect, am going to have a lot of fun with my new friend.

It hailed, a double rainbow and sunshine between showers.

I intend to bring the boat tomorrow to Gig Harbor and then do the haul out in Tacoma right after I come back from California on May 13th.

Help is coming from several directions in response to the items I listed in my last “Resurrection”¬†mailing.¬†Windvane, inflatable dinghy, folding bike, life raft are already checked off.¬†
