Our current status: 7 feet of deck is missing on the port stern quarter, and a large chunk of cabin wall is hanging loose over the galley, too rotten to clamp back together, too many other tasks to be done before it's safe to remove, waiting for its opportunity to be undone and rebuilt.
But it's cozy inside, thanks to Gabrielle's imaginative use of insulation and seat cushions for padding.
Building this site, I've been reminded just how far we have come over the past two years, and feel a deep sense of gratitude for my loving companion, for her energy, intelligence and generosity, for our lives, our health, and for having together endured -- even thrived -- through events that were hazardous and sometimes dangerous to life and limb.
Boat life is either adventure or adversity, depending on how you look at it. Even rebuilding a boat that you live on is successful solely based on your perspective.
Gabrielle and I feel truly successful... and this boat gives us opportunities every day to be more successful!
We hope you enjoy sharing our adventures.
