Mississippi,"Here we come"

Jon and I are off to Mississippi for a week to be with Amy for Graduation. This is when Amy officially gets her pilot wings from the Air Force. We are very proud of her and can’t wait to see her.
We spent this past Saturday at the boat; the temp was around 60 so it was nice and warm to get a few more things done. I finished the V berth and cleaned it up for sleeping on when we get back home from Mississippi. I also had enough time to do a light sanding on the bottom and prep for the bottom paint which will be done some time in April(depending on weather). Jon worked some more on the propane locker, he added a wall inside and opened that one up from the galley to give me more storage room. The new Propane locker outside will still have enough room for three tanks. With the temp warmer he was able to do a few coats of epoxy and with the way he was singing to himself I think it was going well. I did not take photos but will start taking many more when we get back.
Our planned projects when we return will be. Finish Propane locker, hoses and sensors. Button up new lockers and hatches. Start repairing and replacing stuff on bottom in preparation to put Kasidah in water, which will make working on her much easier. Jon needs to rebed a few bolts, change a thru hull, add the new smart transducer for the new ST70 and deal with the loose pin in the rudder (this will be the hard one). I will clean and do any last touch ups on her, put a coat of cetol on the wood, give her a wax job, rebed any thing on the top side that looks like it needs it and we will both replace the main winches that we took off in the fall to clean.
This is a photo of the table. We had a small area on one side cut out so when it is folded up we can fit around it without having to open it to slide into the seat.
