Looks like even better weather to come!

We spent our first weekend at the boat this year. It was not as bad as I thought so that’s a fine thing. We closed the V-berth door and around 2am it was so freaking hot in there that off all the covers went. I really think that by insulating that part of the boat made a huge different in the temp.
We managed to get 90% of all our “to do list” finished. The one big setback was as usual we ran out of parts or something was not the right size.
The new ST70 transducer is in, the propane hoses and sensor are in and propane locker along with new spare parts locker are painted and ready to be buttoned up and checked for any leaks. New holding tank is in and all hoses are in- that was way to easy with the floor up. bedding of deck plates are done, Galley wood top has been modified to accommodate our microwave. New spare parts locker door has been cut down to size to fit the hole. We will need to replace globe on oil lamp since Jon decided to play head butt with it and do a dance around the cabin with it (by the way this will be the third replacement this year). OOOOH and one more thing....We are going to party around a campfire with all the awsome people at Fair Point Marina-Thank goodness they don't drink alot:)
This coming weekend is going to be in the 80s so it will be a big change from last week. I’m not complaining but it should be a scorcher under our canvas working. This weekend our plans are to finish propane and have it running, have holding tank and monitor up and running, have new water tank up and running, have deck wash down and new cockpit shower up and ready. Oh ya one more thing if we have time, is to remount our main wenches.
Thought I would add a photo that Amy sent on her first morning in San Antonio, TX where she will be for the next four months flying.
