Don"t know why Dec gets me active about my boat...but I will start sleeping and living on the boat ...Cats have to come too.  Having pets do tie me down, but my girls do pretty well on the boat up to now.  I have not startrd the engine with them aboard yet. ...or sailing.  They stay mostly in the Aft Berth,,,,but that is where the engine is ..( these are cats that listen to classical music all day, and have never seen a dog...very pampered).so we will see.

They hate the cock pit, so imagine they wil find their hiding soft spot on the boat some place.

I'm getting bids on the enclosure for the cockpit....this will expand my living space....like a sun porch...

Now I need crew to go with me and anchor out...little by little...any takers?  Today was high 60's..our winters are usually in 50 and 60's...although it can freeze on rare ocassions.

Well needless to say I am excited about it.

I will add to this as I go along.  Advice is welcome.

Lola, I look often in hopes of seeing your car at the marina.  I walked around on Saturday, February 4th, but you were not there.  Your boat looks great.  Maybe one day I will be able to step aboard.  Now I am trying to talk Wendy into buying one and it looks like now that Hell freezing over is no longer a requirement.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Thanks John..I'm adding height to my Nav pod so it sits higher than the Auto pilot.  I still like your set up too.

Ahoy Lola...congratulations on your decision to live aboard.  Your boat below is lovely....you will be most comfortable!!  Did you sell your house and cut all lines on land?

Good for you! I'll be doing the same as soon as I swap boats.

Looks like a nice little cozy area! You should not have issues. Nice layout for your floor plan. What size is that again, 30 or 40' ? Looks like a 30'? Cat looks cozy, I would not worry about him too much! Dogs will go along with anything! Just as long as their getting attention. Good luck!

Well good thing I'm on the boat more, as am dealing with a thru hull drip.  Seems fine when I have it turned off, but when I call for water in the galley, it drips, very slow.

Did not want to do a haul out as just did a few months ago.

I did tests in all positions, and use of the baby powder as suggested and seems to drip at the handle...will try to tighten the clamps, with my elec drill, next.

Advice welcome  Don't cha just love boats?

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
