For example, we picked up the dinghy this week. That meant spending the day in Annapolis to run errands with the last stop being the dinghy place. Of course since we now have the dinghy it was only right to install the outboard motor. And of course with the outboard installed it was only right to take the dinghy out to test it. So we have enjoyed several rides out on the river with the dinghy in an effort to get the motor timing right. This, of course, is all done in the name of progress....well perhaps not entirely.
But progress has been made. The genoa is up and on the furling. The Captain went up the mast yesterday and mounted the Raydome and TV antenna. He even took a few pictures while he was up there. We were fortunate as we have had several days of rain and managed to find a weather window to get up the mast.
It appears weather will continue to be our nemisis. It is pouring again this morning. Ahh perhaps that means we will need to get breakfast out. The life and trials of a sailor bum......how tragical.
