This thing is really coming together. Everyday we’re another step closer to setting sail. Today the watermaker was installed. Greg’s installation is really slick. The clark pump is tucked back on the bottom shelf to protect it, and the instrument panel is perfectly mounted on the top corner to have it out-of-the-way and facilitate easy reading.
As vital as clean drinking water is, I’d say the other projects on the boat today are just as essential to life aboard Oceanna. Boards. I finished the board socks today and Greg got them all mounted up under the bimini. Four surfboards and two kiteboards fit like a dream. It’s like the bimini was made for them.
On the mail truck today was Greg’s new skimboard. Greg has been skimming since he was a wee tot, and this is the first skim he’s ever bought. He usually makes his own wood skimmas, but this one is fiberglass with a high density foam core and is required “for the waves brah!”
And finally today we said goodbye to a hard working part of this team, the fish rug. The fish rug has been crucial in many projects, providing a guilt-free working surface for everything from epoxy to dye. Swim on fishes.
