... with a good stout ship beneath your feet ...



No sooner had we gotten home from Alaska when we sold our boat. This week we bought our new one. What a thrill to clean it up and start settling in. Or, as the Muppets say, it was our time to poop the deck!

here's the new boat ... hooray!

Our family joined us to check out the new boat and to make sure it passed the height test. Yes, our tall 6'4" and 6'1" sons can walk about with ease. More painting spaces, too!

Outstanding! Sleek and wicked fast, I bet! Where're you going on your shakedown cruise?

Word verification is appropriately "quivers".

These early days of owning a new boat are filled with cleaning, testing, fixing, inspecting, and then cleaning some more. Official inspection happens Tuesday.

Naming a boat is a challenge. We have pages of names that aren't THE name, but soon enough we'll come up with the right one.

There's room for more than one artist to paint on this boat. Want to join me?
