"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 24 – Great Bridge, VA

Paint…Paint…Paint
Atlantic Yacht Basin

We’ve spent the last two days painting…inside and out! I have been working on the non-skid areas on the deck and Stan has been painting lots of things in the engine room. Our engine room is pretty small, as you can see from the picture below, so Stan has been busy painting all surfaces he can white. That way it will look brighter and cleaner…at least for a while.

Stan has also been getting a lot of other work done in the engine room, like adding a charcoal filter to the holding tank, rubber engine mounts for the generator, replaced wood near the fuel tanks and reinstalled the macerator. Boat projects are never ending.

Nothing but work at the moment, even cooking on board. We feel like we are getting a lot accomplished, so maybe we can take a play day soon!

Our little piece of the barn!
As you can see a lot of work is going on here
