its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Bathroom Improvements

It’s amazing what a difference a little paint can make. We have been thinking of what we could do with the ugly gold vinyl in the shower since we bought the boat in March. We did a lot of research on different options…all seemed like a lot of work. Then it came to us…paint! I love paint. First we used a multi purpose latex primer from Sherwin Williams and then an Interlux Bright Side polyurethane paint for the top coat. Time will tell how it holds up, but anything will be better than what we had.

We have also replaced the wooden bathroom fixtures, they were very bulky, old and in my opinion “nasty”. We are looking for a curved shower rod that will give us a little more space in the shower. Little things that will make it feel more like home.

Let the Adventure Begin

We are one step closer to the beginning of our adventure…I gave notice at work today!  We haven’t set a departure date, but I will be free to go anytime after January 15, 2011.

We still have a lot of work to do to provision the boat and close up our house, but we are getting closer.
