January 23, 2013

My husband and I were sitting out on our balcony enjoying a glass of wine while on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. The color of the ocean was so rich and spellbinding, we were both silently mesmerized.  Out of the blue I mentioned how amazing it would be to travel in our own boat, go where we wanted.  It was only a dream spoken aloud, not really serious, just a lovely thought.

We received a phone call yesterday (Jan. 18th) from our broker in Kemah, Tx telling us that our boat was almost completed. They have only to paint the bottom and let it dry, and then we finally get to move aboard!!! We are thrilled!

Disappointed and yet, Learning about Dehumidifiers

We have found out that the yacht yard, which was supposed to repair our boat before Christmas, wasn't able to get to it and are just now starting on the fixes. Both of us feeling deflated. We had gone through our storage unit two more times to sort through what we'd take on the boat (which we know is still too much) and what to leave in storage. We were ready to move. Now it's another 2 weeks of waiting.

We have been using that time to read up on sailing, check out things we'll need to buy for the best prices, and posting on several sailing sites to pick up more info.
