This weekend I'm hoping to fix the head; fix the girl's door, which is coming unglued; take the girls fishing with their new rod; take them paddling in our dinghy; finish up the lifeline netting; clean the boat above and below; further customize Sweet Pea's dock step (shorter, with the addition of some texture); get some diesel; check fluids; get cowlings; get propane; shock the water tanks; tape some small tears on the sails; get some new flares; get a logbook; and go sailing. I might not get to everything.
We invited ourselves aboard and had a wonderful visit with the crew of s/v Texas Two Step, a Leopard 38 sailed by Dave and Leslie, who started cruising 14 years ago with their 6 and 8-year-old daughters aboard a Ranger 33. It was really neat to get to hear about their experiences.
Today a 48-foot wooden catamaran with 5 kids aboard came in to stay for a couple months. Lorelei has hit it off well with their 3-year-old. They spent 45 minutes chasing each other around and doctoring her fluffy pillow. We're looking forward to getting to know them all better.
