Arrival and Zephyr’s new bottom

Last uhaul coming to Maryland from Des Moines!  The house is empty and renters move in July 8.

The first look at our shiny, refreshed boat.  Zephyr is almost ready to launch.  Just a few more working days and we’ll be enjoying boat life once again.  Many thanks to Jason and crew at Oxford Safe Harbor marina for the bottom paint and buff.  She’s looking beautiful!  

And apologies to the starlings who did not want to leave their massive nest in the boom.  You guys loved Zephyr too but it’s our turn!  

We’re finding space to store clothes for multiple seasons, dishes, pots/pans, spices (!), and on and on.  

 

Today the fire safety inspector comes to check out our 4 (!) fire extinguishers and our fire boy.  A fire boy is an automated fire suppression system, with ours situated in the engine room.  Along with massive holes in the hull, fires are the most common reason one may have to abandon ship.  Great to have this gear in good working order!  

Speaking of the thing we hope never to use, here is our new life raft all mounted at the stern.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Randy has been finishing countless projects.  We’ll share in a separate post.  However, here’s one example.  I am sitting here at the nav station creating this post on my iMac, which is plugged in using the inverter to create 110 power off of our new battery bank… all being charged by our new solar panels!
