polishing the fuel

We are finally on Kasidah and in the water at Indiantown Marina where we store the boat during the summer months. She looked really good this year with minor clean up and very few repairs from salt and hot tempertures, this can really do a number on boats here in the warmer climates.

Some of the projects this season were-scupper rebuilds, refer unit platform rebuild, wench cleanings,sealing and caulk on the cap-rail to prevent leaks and water getting inside, head rebuild, grill rebuild, polish fuel, generator maintenance, scrapping old cetoil and putting new coats on teak, make new cushion backs for the cockpit and as always making Kasidah look good for the season.

Washington DC and on.....


We had a great time in Washington DC while visiting our Oldest daughter Amy and son-in law Jeremy.
 We took the Metro into the city to visit our history and have some great food the weather was warm and sunny the whole time.
Cruiser friends of ours Jon,Marguerite and Erin just happened to be about two hours from the kids house in Deltaville so we took a day to go visit them and they treated us out to lunch. We plan on doing some sailing with them in the next month or two. It was great to sit and talk about all they had done up till then and people we had been friends with in the past. We are looking forward to more good time with them

We had a great time at the kids place and a surprise was let out of the bag while there. Jon and I will be Grandparents come June of next year. We are so excited about this and can hardly wait till June.
