It’s Not Our Boat, But We’ll Sail It!

We’re on the water and we’re going sailing! It’s not our boat, but that won’t stop us from using it.

Driving out to Palm Beach, we met up with new friends Courtney and Jeremy of Sailing Teho to take their new-to-them boat out for a spin in the Atlantic. It was a great chance for Matt and I to get out on the water again, and for Jeremy and Courtney to have a boat-virtuoso help them diagnose a few issues they were running into.

It was a fabulous day where we were able to get the sails up for a few hours, take a hike around Peanut Island, and enjoy a spectacular sunset as we motored back to Lake Worth.

Our Boat Looks Like an Easter Egg

Groundhog Day has come and gone, but in our lives we’re still living it every day.

Our lives are still revolving around working on our bottom. Add faring compound, sand smooth, re-prime where we’ve sanded through, to bare metal, and repeat. With all the extra colors being added to our round white bottom, we’re actually starting to look like an Easter Egg!

We were able to take one day off to celebrate a very special occasion for ourselves, our Half-life-iversary! Now that our 17 year dating anniversary has come around it means we’ve spent half our lives together as a couple. Too bad the day didn’t want to agree with us for having a good time.

Lastly, we finish up the hard dodger with the remaining coats of paint and get it up in place. It will be awhile before we start the fabric enclosure though, as until we get the mast up, we’re still not 100% sure the boom will clear the top, lol.

Bare Bottomed No More

Dive in with us as we tackle A LOT of boat work in this episode.

Wow, we are all over the place in this one, or at least it seems that way on camera. But really?; it’s a pretty typical week for us. We had a surprise visit from our welder to complete the last of what we needed there….which means we were free to start on the bottom!
Sanding and grinding down to bare aluminum, priming, and then adding a barrier coat, we had an exhaustive week. It didn’t end there though. On top of the barrier coat, Matt added a faring compound to smooth out a few of the seams which I (Jessica) had to sand down to smooth even more.
Our work continues to the inside of the boat as well. I take to (hopefully) getting the last coat of paint in our forward salon, and Matt is beginning to get us functional by beginning the process of wiring everything to our batteries.

New Year’s Eve on the Water

There was no way we could spend another New Years Eve stuck in Indiantown, and took an opportunity to visit our friends Cati and Johannes on their catamaran in Ft. Lauderdale. Before we could get there though, there’s the never ending list of boat projects. This time it included getting our mast all the way on deck before having to drop it again due to rigging issues.

Beach Days & Building Our Own Hard Dodger

Long days of boat work can really take their toll, so we played hookie one afternoon and headed out to the beach. With special reason though, it was our 12 year wedding anniversary! Watching surfers conquer the waves and enjoying the breezes, it was exactly the break we needed.
Our biggest boat project at the moment is building our own hard dogder, a task that has been spanning two months of work. There has been a lot of logistics and tedious work, but the finished product will be a great addition to our outdoor space.

Cheers from the work yard!
