2012 Project Revisited

We did accomplish a lot last year, making the boat a great place to spend weekends on.

JSI built us new cushions for the salon.  We replaced our running lights with new LED lights and added an LED spotlight over the dinghy to make those return trips at night easier when bringing the dog into shore.

We replaced the roll up doors on the port salon lockers with beautiful teak doors.  Same with the galley doors.  We finally installed the microwave in the galley for convenience.  And best of all, we installed a liquor cabinet over the table.

Other projects that are not shown include changing the analog thermostat in the galley fridge to an electronic unit.  The old thermostat would freeze everything over night, now we can comfortably use the fridge for weeks at a time without worrying about the temperature.

The new cockpit cushions (from JSI) were long overdue and look great.  The bimini and dodger are great.  The Eisenglass windows in the dodger are crystal clear and we invested in covers that will hopefully keep them in good shape for years to come.

All of our new electronics are great.  But we still miss having a an autohelm.  It's in the budget for this year.

And the kid's college is still getting paid for and he made the Dean's List his first semester.  Not too bad of a year.
