We have been living on dirt for a week now and it’s not as totally weird as I thought it would be. Of course, I have been working on the boat every day, so it’s not like Convivia and I are estranged, but it is strange to watch the kids spread out all over this little house like gas (filling all available space). The boat was supposed to splash on Friday, but they found hundreds of blisters and they had to be dealt with. The yard has been great. Their staff have helped me through countless hardships and even lent me tools (an unheard of generosity in the realm of boatyards).
So despite the disappointment of the delay, we have been making do with this dirt dwelling lifestyle and I have managed to get some really amazing work done on the boat. If all goes well I should get the new water maker through hull finished tomorrow and get the macerator through hull installed and terminated. I’ll finish the install later. With the completion of the new 2″ scuppers last week, we will be ready to splash on Wednesday, a few days late but no worse for wear.
