Working on Kasidah at Indiantown Marina

Getting ready for Thanksgiving.....
We are very busy getting Kasidah ready to splash on Friday. This is the first chance I have had to sit down and write something because we are either outside working on her or so exhausted we just want to crash.
 We left Connecticut just after Sandy and just before the first snow storm so I would say we lucked out and dodged the snow altogether. We made a quick stop in to see some FPM customers- Doug and Denise then off to Jeremy and Amy's house in Dover for a few nights.
Next we made our way down to Beaufort NC to visit cruising friends Mark and Lynda and stayed two nights on their new Hauns Christian boat. They have been working on it for a few months so Jon thought he would help out with some issues and stay an extra day. Lynda and I went shopping in Morehead City and got to catch up on all that stuff woman talk about.
When we finally got to Kasidah we decided to head to Stuart and have dinner with Mel and Carol who have a winter place down here. It was great to see them here.
Don and Betty (from Licoln Maine) family friends.
For the past week we have been cleaning and fixing things on the boat. It really takes a toll on her to sit for six months in the Florida heat. I think she was made to live on full time.
Jon has been really happy with all the electronics, engine,genny and other items firing right up. He even was pleased at how well the fuel filtering went this year.

We are seeing a lot of cruising friends pulling in now and we are all starting to talk about where to go this year. I would like to head south to Miami then cross to the Berry's maybe head to the Exuma's for a month and  then back to The Berry's to spend some time there. This place is great and we know so many wonderful people there, I feel like I am at home there.
