As a Star Trek nerd this keeps going through my mind lately as I hear (and see!) the state of things for shore power on Steadfast. Keith started to undertake this project and just like when he did the DC rewiring last year, one task has blossomed into a full scale assault on the whole system. He spent hours crawling back and forth trying to understand where the wiring is going, labeling, finding issues (such as the image below) and cutting old wires that seemed to have no purpose what-so-ever. The end result....we have just chipped the tip of the iceberg and are looking at a pretty long way to go to get things where they need to be. Ever so slowly we are working this boat back into physical shape - though frankly you probably couldn't tell from just looking at her. Sometimes I wish that I could have some of the "pretty" stuff done but when I see what is hiding under the hood it becomes evident really quick that beauty is going to have to take a back seat to function and safety.
I'm the wife of the captain, a mother of three boys and a PM in the corporate world. This blog is my view of life and activities related to our boat.
