Scraping By

Good morning everyone. As you can see we are in the shipyard where the dampness has slowed progress but not our spirits. We have scraped and sanded every square inch of the bottom. She is smoother than a baby’s butt. The next few days look sunny so the paint should be flowing. We hope to launch on Sunday.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.

Our hearts and prayers go out to our neighbors to the south who have been devastated by the weather.


  1. Whew! I can't keep up with you. Thought you were still in winter wraps but you have the cover off, the ground tackle re-installed and have made your first short cruise of the year. All this progress feeds the pleasant anticipation of feeling her rigging strain to a fresh breeze.

  2. Beautiful Mary Day, you've had a good cleansing, exfoliating, and a fresh application of makeup. Now you look presentable, and are ready to show your lovely face again. Happy launching! Soon you will grace Penobscot Bay with your shining presence. Kudos to that fabulous crew that has worked so hard to make you ready to sail.

    Here in New Hampshire we echo our captain's sentiments at the horros of the devastation in the south. We keep our brothers and sisters in our thoughts and prayers during this terrible ordeal.

    Hugs to all.

  3. Barry – Sonia and I are fine. We were very lucky that the really bad storms missed our neighborhood. Despite the fact we expect strong storms in the spring this storm system was exceptionally bad. We have never seen anything to rival the destruction the tornadoes left behind. It will be years before the scars fade from the landscape. Thanks for thinking about us and all the people of the South who are suffering.
