Careful, we might take you up on that.

The project is looking great. The hard work will be worth it this summer.

And them strong arms will help with the sails.

Let's see, RI is about 4 hours from me. Hoist the mizzenmast, we're going sailing!

Very nice job done by all.

A few more pics...most of the stuff I've been doing isn't photo-worthy, at least not until i'm out sailing!

Finished the transom repair, and got the new name on. If you look close on the left hand side you can see the rectangle of a slightly different color, the boat is very light blue, not white, so it was a pain to match the color.

New winches installed, which was a big pain in the butt:

Cabin doors done (6 coats varnish):

It is just GORGEOUS!! You guys did a great job! You are involved with water and the sea on all levels--how cool.

I've been to Rhode Island once, to visit Johnson & Wales in Providence, when I thought I was going to get an equine degree. I spent the weekend roaming around the city and even went into Seekonk, MA to see some stables. I loved the whole area--just beautiful.

Yeah, you could say I'm a little obsessed....
--4 fishtanks
--7ish boats (2 sailboats, 2 kayaks, 1 rowing shell, 2 dinghies, 1 windsurfer, 1 RC sailboat -- not sure if the last 2 count as boats)
--went to school to learn how to design boats (I am now a certified boat snob, I know too much about them!)
--now going to school for oceanography

yup, obsessed

Oddly enough, I'm not a huge fan of actually being IN the water....I can swim, and don't dislike it, but I get cold so fast that I don't enjoy it unless the water is really, really warm or I have a wetsuit on.
