|Order returns to Oceanus: Our boat is finally clean and orderly after completion of major projects.|
Most the major construction and painting projects inside Oceanus, our Columbia 43, are finished... I think. When I made a statement to that effect, my wife said, "That's what I said about painting two gallons ago."
Maybe I'm kidding myself, but it sure feels like we've turned the corner. I'm so convinced that I brought our big shop vac home.
Virginia cleaned and put away, erasing the bad effects of several weeks of major projects.
|Virginia glued a piece of hull blanket to cover the exposed fiberglass under the workbench in the forepeak.|
Moving aft, she made up our bunk for the first time in several weeks. With all the sawdust and paint fumes, we haven't been able to sleep aboard the boat for some time, something we have both missed.
|The new rug was on a clearance sale. We cut it to fit around the mast.|
|Nothing says home like a stack of towels. The brown ones are a new type of quick-dry towels we really like and that dry quick.|
|Tub for two: Daughter-in-law Margene demonstrates the roomy soaking tub on Oceanus with newest grandchild Peter.|
In the main saloon I installed the stereo speakers and stereo. I also cut a hole in the bulkhead for our new VHF radio. Next week when our son-in-law, the electrician, visits we'll hook them up.
|The marine stereo, speakers and Standard Horizon VHF radio are in place ready to be wired up next week.|
