First Modifications

Last Friday we also did gave our boat its first additions. We replaced the folding prop with a fixed blade prop for better performance in the ICW. The zincs were replaced and the hull was cleaned. A little high pressure water does the job of six tired elbows in a fraction of the time.


We just closed!! Brad and Dan are official owners of a 1982 Tartan 37'. Congratulations to them. Last Friday we had a survey conducted on the boat, hence the hauled image. Thankfully not much was found in the way of problems. There were no structural issues and the minor issues were just that. I got excited today because my mother was kind enough to drag me to BJs wholesale and food shop with me. We are really getting close here.
Preliminary estimates for departure are October 17thish.
To do: purchase dingy, gps, storm jib.
