I never thought the end would be in sight. ~~_/)_~~

As I went for my predawn walk this morning, it dawned on me, i only had 2 major payments left. One was the final bill to the Marina and the other to the canvas guy for a full enclosure.

After that, it was just bits and pieces here and there. No major purchases are left. after so long, so much work I can't believe it, Finally it's really going to happen this time. Jomfru WILL go back to the water.

I still have to complete the interior but most of the major components have already been acquired and is a matter of cosmetics only. Some of the components already acquired are a 80 gallon a day water maker, 4 burner stove with oven, 2 central air conditioning units, a 38,000 btu instant hot water heater powered by propane, And much more.

Then to now...

it's been what now seems forever but Jomfru's finally getting ready togo back to the sea. Or at least splashed and floating again. It has been an exhausting and trying processed to say the least at this point. Most of my biggest fears and worries are behind me now. Make no mistake though I am still plagued with dozens of last minute details; thru hulls, Packing, zincs, etc The list goes on and on. Just having and maintaining a list means things are happening.

I have a few places Picked out already spots like boot Kay Harbor, Peanut Island, san blas. But in all reality I have no idea what the future holds in store for me, All I know is that my life on the boat Has already Begun, my life at sea is yet to come

The places and people I will see and meet, I can just Imagine, I look forward with eager anticipation. This is the new beginning. I really need this, I need this to grow, I need this for me.I welcome with open arms time to reflect on the past understand why things go the way they do, figure out how to take a more active part in the future.

Relaxing after a long few days

there's always eyes 👀 watching. 

It's been a few long weeks of work for me, but very lucrative. Relaxing after working all day for ones self, feels much more rewarding and fulfilling. My one larger job, the Wellcarft 36, launches tomorrow hopefully. The new little job, Nebe, cape 28 is a joy and wonder to paint. Small yet rewarding to see her progress. It was while painting her today, I realized i was at that very moment doing something I would and probly do for the rest of my able life. Painting boats! my rate, my time, my way. I'm really glad things went south or at Least in the direction they did... Except for the girl. But that's another story.
