I am so excited today because I finally have interior lights back in the boat. I guess the one thing that living on a boat on a mooring does is help with priorities and boy was I missing lights. Keith spent today identifying the massive bundle of interior wires and re-wiring them to the new panel so I'm a super happy camper tonight sitting her with a warm glow overhead rather then the highly efficient but highly annoying LED lights put out by the camping lanterns were using. Now, if only I could get hot water without running the engine, then my life would be in really great shape. Unfortunately I don't see that happening. I think it was a good thing that we were living in the harbor last year with shore power as I think the transition would have been a challenge. On the flip side, now that I know what shore power provides it's kind of a bummer not to have it. Course the bright side is that Keith hasn't wired the shore power so even if we were at the dock I wouldn't have the creature comforts of a freezer or hot shower.
We've been having a blast with the inflatable when returning to the boat in the evening. The kids get a total kick out of getting air off the top off the swell...it's better then any amusement ride. Just tonight the little boys were laughing so hard they couldn't breath. Hearing their hysterical giggles is priceless for sure.
