May 2017, boat work

IMG_2623Sailing magazines and blogs often are filled with gorgeous pictures of hammocks and perfect waves. Margaritas with umbrellas on white sand beaches. Fabulously plated meals against a backdrop of water-drenched sunsets.

They leave out the other stuff. The dirty, messy, curse-laden, blister-inducing, contort-yourself-into-impossibly-small-space maintenance. The mast needs varnishing. The deck prisms need rebedding. The carpet we laid down 25 years ago on the inside of cubbies needs to be ripped out – and all of that adhesive needs to come off.


And that’s just stuff from one weekend.

I promise, we’ll go sailing this summer.

Meanwhile, though, we’re working on the boat.

Think I should take “before” pictures?
