It's not suppose to be like this, is it??

OK, looks like all the potential pit-falls in selling the house have cleared (inspection, assessment, financing). So we are now just marking time to MOVE OUT day - June 30th.

Have been working feverishly on the boat to try and get it sort of ready to move on, and I have to say it seems like it is going backwards. Yesterday attempted to pull the water tank, we failed both the Trig test, and basic carpentry. Will try again Saturday after cutting out more of that new lazzerette framing I put in a couple of months ago.

Cabinets are taking more time then expected (as always), AND I located 4 cracked ribs when I cleared out the old stuff to make room for the new cabs. So now is the potential of dry dock for a few days to repair those while access is easy. Or move ahead and fit out the aft cabin and do the repairs next spring...

As of now the boat is totally unusable: Way too much stuff everywhere (projects), main alternator removed, exhaust system removed to make room for getting out water tank, mast dropped for some repairs, propane box in but not plumbed (No BBQ, No stove, ..) Oh, and no water!

And we have basically TWO weeks to make the boat livable again, sell our stuff, and MOVE OUT.

Isn't this suppose to be fun?
