That was the sound of my boat getting back in the water. It was a pretty exhausting 3 weeks, but thanks to Tim, Wyatt, and Carson; I’m looking good. At least, the boat is looking good. I’m still old and not that easy on the eyes.
A little magic happened during the time in the yard. The boat MAGICO left the water, but the sailing vessel DABOTE returned. I renamed the boat. That’s supposed to be bad luck, but I don’t believe in such things (knock wood). I applied for entry into Guatemala with the new name and my new documents. The cruising permit under the old name expired and I wasn’t going to pay the fine to extend it. So, like magic, MAGICO just disappeared.
I’ll be moving up river in a couple days to have some more work done.
The interior is not as squared away, but will be in a feew days.
