We started this blog to keep up with the rebuild phases, along with sailing and our adventures. Since we are out of state working at the moment (working 72+ hours a week - each!), we don't have a whole lot to post about. One good thing about being away from the project is that it gives (forces) me to think about "The List". You know what list I am talking about. Every home owner, traveler, especially boat owner knows about the To Do list.
Being here and giving my plan a look through each night helps me catch any errors in the scope and allows plenty of lead time to order parts. I whittle my lists, doodle, draw technical pictures and prioritize the "must do X before Y" bullets. Each week we receive a box or two in the mail. It is actually fun for us to open the boxes of do-hickies and mentally picture where and how they will be installed. How many times have you purchased a product, got it to the boat, climbed all the way in to the back of the lazarette, stood on your head while being a contortionist only to realize you forgot about buying a lock washer for the installation? I have!
While we hate being away from the boat it is in fact a blessing in disguise because it helps us to effectively plan our boat work.
