We’ve started a new countdown timer
Although we have only been off our boat for a couple of weeks we have already started a countdown timer until we can get Katana back in the water and get back on board. Assuming an April 15th splashdown (I have no idea when we can really do it) there are only 168 days remaining.
We are still in the process of winterizing Katana. Tomorrow morning we will be meeting the guys who are going to shrink-wrap her on Saturday. Following that meeting we will need to change the spark plugs and remove and store both the lifelines and the trampoline. That should pretty much do it for the pre-shrink-wrap, winter-prep stuff.
This morning I contacted a local sail loft about repairing the small tear we put in our main sail. The guy I spoke to on the phone sounded very nice and “dialed-in.” Hopefully it won’t be too much of a production to fix it.
Our big task today is going to the lawyer’s to sign the papers for the sale of our business. This is HUGE for us and I wouldn’t be being honest if I didn’t say that we were feeling a tiny (really tiny) bit of seller’s remorse. It’s a big change! This solidifies our path though and is necessary for us to take off cruising next year.
Check out the pic below of Katana being hauled out. Our marina-friends, Adrian and Lucy, were nice enough to send us a bunch of pics that they took. Thanks guys!
