Oh, the glamour.
Yesterday was one of those extra special boat-work days that really highlights the glamour of the cruising lifestyle. That’s sarcasm in case you can’t tell. Among other things, Rebecca and I swapped all of the hoses connected to the head and holding tank so that the new owners, whoever they turn out to be, won’t have to deal with that nasty job for some time to come. We actually had no idea how bad the hoses were but the image below shows just how restricted they had become.
Urine reacts with salt water to create stone-like deposits.
In more positive news, we had another couple register for our Real Sailing Adventure, a couple from Canada. Interestingly, we never had even one charter group from Canada when we were working out of St. Thomas. Friends of ours did but we did not.
We are also currently working with the sellers of two separate Amels. Hopefully one of those boats will turn out to fit our plan perfectly, and we’ll have it tied up shortly. I wrote on Facebook that I only hope that the people selling whatever boat we buy have done half the stuff to prep it for sale that we are doing!
