It will seem like Christmas next week
It will seem like Christmas next week EXCEPT for the fact that we had to pay for all of the items that we should be receiving. Here is a list of items we have on order for which we are awaiting delivery:
- N3 Long-range wifi system
- Lewmar Profish 1000 electric anchor windlass
- Profill battery watering kit
- Soft water storage containers
- Fortress FX 16 anchor with rope rode
- Global Fix 406 G-PIRB
- Standard Horizon STD-HX600S Handheld Marine VHF Radio
The last three items are being purchased used from another PDQ owner in the US. They are selling their boat and moving on to new adventures.
In preparation for Katana’s winter storage we have been shopping around for someone to shrink wrap her. Not many boats in our marina seem to do this but Katana’s previous owner David had this done each year (and the boat is mint because of that). The one quote we have received thus far is a LOT of money. I won’t plug their company just yet until we decide who we’ll be going with, or if we’ll come up with another solution. Below is a photo of Katana shrink wrapped last winter.
By the way, the little heater we purchased from West Marine (see previous post) works great. Our cabin is nice and cosy now!
