Finally! I am the proud owner of a hole on the water I can throw my money into! Although I’m a few thousand miles away in Afghanistan, I can now start working on some of the boat projects:

Here’s the little list so far:


Allow easy access to the cockpit scupper drain valve 
Boat Graphics
Bottom Job
Confirm condition/integrity of forward fuel tank prior to returning to service
Confirm oven burner function, service as required
Evaluate shaft strut, reinforce as required
Install GFCI outlets as required
Inventory all hose clamps and replace/supplement as required
Repair electric bilge pump
Repair generator fuel leak
Replace stuffing box hose clamps-Service dripless stuffing box 
Secure leak in water pump under forward head sink
Secure starter cable from chafe
Tune and secure lifelines
Upgrade battery installation
Upgrade/replace anchor chain
Deck re-caulking
Shrink Wrapping

Some of the stuff I will be doing for myself, but some f the work I will farm out. The criteria I am basing the decisions are the fact that I want to sail the boat while I’m on leave in May.
