Driftwood

We are pretty much ready to go

Work has been ongoing.  Football season slowed us down since we halt all work when the Longhorns or A&M are playing or if there is a particularly good game that weekend.  As it stands right now, the boat can cross oceans, take us anywhere we want to go.  We’ll be sailing this Thanksgiving around the bay.  But there is soooo much left to do that falls in the comfort and mental health zones as well as needed updates.  Below is our current to-do list for your reading pleasure.  Some items were marked out just last weekend.

Some of these are simply nice to have things –  a spice organizer, exterior stereo speakers, etc.  Others are necessary but not emergency needs and can be done over time – new anchor, forward holding tank, binnacle rebuild, etc.  None of these are show stoppers at this point except maybe the water heater, I need that.  And the matches and the remote control and the paddle ball game.  I need those.
