Keith is hard at work getting some much needed projects done and we are talking through what we need to work on together when I get there in a few short weeks. When he unpacked the boat from winter storage he found we had a guest aboard. Some poor mama bird made a nest on the wrong boat...one that actually gets used. Keith moved it to a somewhat safe location and hoped that the mama bird would return to finish raising the little guy.
The bunk reconfiguration (i.e. The Pet Project)
One project that wasn't on our To Do list but which Keith has started (I affectionately call it his Pet Project) is to create a full bunk for Elliot, our youngest, who has been making do with a half bunk these past few years. This involves removing some drawers and storage space which means I'll need to figure out where to keep their clothes. Wouldn't be a difficult issue if we lived in the tropics but as we live off the coast of California, when the fog rolls in we gotta layer...hence a wide variety of clothes are required. One thing I can't stand is storage under bunks for frequently accessed items, like clothes, so I'm going to see if we can somehow leverage the forward closet, maybe have Keith build some shelves in there.
Keith seems to have gotten the refrigeration hardware working (saves us some big cash) and is focused on rebuilding up the interior of the frig as the glass has fallen apart from water over the years. Kind of a stinky job. The other big item we need to work on is the shore power. That might have to come in phases though with the first order of business being my office space.
