November 29, 2009

Still working. We are getting very close to being ready to leave. Recently we've decided we need an electrical system after all. So, we installed a 12-watt solar panel and a cute little 10.5amp alarm battery. This should be sufficient to charge our phone and netbook so we can read lots of ebooks and compile more pictures for the photo-greedy among you. Speaking of which, we've uploaded 14 more to our album, a few of which are below:

In response to the $580 quote we got on a boat mattress we decided to make our own. It turned out Awesome!! We even had enough left over to make a little bed for Ginny's cat Snazz.

We also decided we needed an "anchor buddy", so we tore up some old batteries to get free lead (and yes, we were quite aware of all the many levels in which this was a terrible idea) and then broke down and bought some lead after two batteries only yielded 10 lbs worth.

We painted Thurston's name on the boat :(

... and had a tiny bit of extra time to hang out... But only while working!
