Preparations Continue

In preparation for getting a survey, yesterday afternoon I cleaned out the boat. The main sail and the boom was on the cabin floor but now the main sail is sitting in the living room and the boom is sitting on the deck. Much of the loose stuff that was sitting around, like tools, sandpaper sheets, extra bolts, etc., were all put in boxes and taking up space in the truck. I did a little bit of vacuuming  up too.

I thought I would post a few pictures of the inside.

Also yesterday, in the morning, I went up to the Green Turtle Bay Marina where I am expecting to have the boat. There were a few people around. Looked like some were getting their boats ready for the summer. I talked to a guy who has a boat in the slip right across from where mine will be and he talked about water levels and where to get good info for lake conditions. He's been there for at least a few years and seems to be a good source of info.

I wanted to see which side of the dock the slip was in. There is walking space between each boat with three cleats on either side. It was a little cool out and it was rainy through the weekend so not too many people were around. It is pretty quiet and relaxing. I'm expecting to spend as much time as I can at the boat, mostly on the weekends. Who knows, maybe I'll sail out in the lake and spend the night at anchor in a small bay. Before I left the marina, I walked around the shop that has some maintenance supplies along with t-shirts and other items for enjoying time at the lake.

    1. Thank you.

      I had a visitor recently and said he was surprised the interior looks so nice for how old the boat is.

  2. Wow, great interior. Good place for wood and varnish... out of the sun. :) Looks like a very practical design as well, with quarter berths and head right near the companionway and a linear galley. Very cool.

    1. Thanks. I really like how the interior looks. Much better condition than I could have hoped for. Different layout than a lot of other boats this size and it works wonderfully.
