What a great summer. We got to spend more time on our gorgeous boat and are making sure she is getting ready for the big trip in a few years time.
The 3 cats joined us for a week travelling from Trenton to Sandy Cove, Napanee and the anchorage in Hay Bay. We were joined by the O’tooles and Greenings for a trip to the 1000 islands and we enjoyed many visits with good friends, lots of laughs a few beverages too…
The hard top is on (sort of) and we love it. Rick did a great job. Hopefully it will be finished in the fall when she is back on the hard. The best news….the generator is working again!! Finally had to get a professional to look at it and it is working like a charm. We also purchased a RO unit to make our own water on board. We had to replace some batteries and a water pump on the starboard engine but other than that she is working wonderfully. Gary talked me into getting a wash down installed and I have to say; it makes washing the boat a lot easier.
Gary is handling the twin engines like a pro and docking the boat is getting easier and better. We finally tracked down a manual for the radar ...so there is some studying to be done over the down time in the winter/fall.
There is still some work to be done to get her ready for the big trip in a few years’ time.
Now she is almost ready to be lifted out again and stored for the long winter…
Oh why does the summer go so fast…..?
