A little lift…and a new home

Here’s our gal on the ropes again, lol!

The money saved in not having to travel the 80 miles (one way!) to work on her more than paid for relocating her.

Matt’s Marine Transport was the BEST to work with! She may now have traveled more miles by road than by sea.

Home sweet home! This is our daughter and son-in-love’s new home. Our gal is squeezed in next to Jeff’s new workshop. Yes, the (crazy) plan is for us to live on her while we’re refitting her, LOL!

Putt, putt anyone?

cockpit
Yup, that’s our cockpit sole or maybe it’s got ‘soul’ now, lol. This grass by Golden Moon is not only realistic looking but feeling and makes for happy feet. It’s adhered to a board we can lift out and it should drain well and not be slippery and it is mold proof. It’s been quite the conversation starter so far, lol!
bulkhead wall
The starboard bulkhead wall is complete and was built form the bottom up (SO much easier)!
galley1
The fridge was relocated and my counter space reduced (nooo!). We’re designing a dinette where the galley used to be—in a perfect world dinette will easily convert into a berth.
dinette
Here’s the rough design of the aft seat for dinette: table will go in the center, feet will rest on raised floor, storage underneath. We hope it will be a better use of space as there’s lots of headroom in this area. We’ll use a beautiful wood for the final version and cover with custom cushions.
