Perhaps a little of both wafts in to us under the tarps shielding Moontide, as we huddle and cuddle and listen to the droning wetness pouring down on us.
The dry winter is trying to make up for lost time in the Northwest with squall after squall of blustery rainstorms sweeping over the boats in our little marina.
Time for indoor projects... maybe catching up on a little reading.
With plastic covering most of the boat, we have been able to complete a few outstanding deck projects:
Gabrielle spent most of the Winter rebuilding the original 'turtle' or 'garage' for the sliding lid (see above), but we both agreed that the labor/time vs result on the lid itself made it worth updating our options. An added benefit is the light the acrylic lid gives to the galley.
Now I just gotta do something about those doors!!!
Those of you kind enough to ride with us on Moontide last Fall know exactly what we mean!
Boat life and Marina Life is a microcosm of our larger world -- people move in or move on, relationships are fostered, or lost to conflict. Owners legislate. Rebels isolate. The rest of us try to mediate. Illness comes and goes.
Puppies are born. Friends die.
We take a moment to Remember Roger Wenzel, a neighbor, friend, and boat builder, who succumbed to cancer this month after years of battling with it. Our hearts go out to all the folks who cared for him. He is missed.
That's about all we have new to share from the Wobegone branch of Multnomah Channel for now.
