Memorial Day Weekend we moved onto Changes and started sleeping on her Sunday. The entire 3-day weekend we packed and move items onto Changes that we thought we would need, and moved as much as we could into storage. Thursday was the big move the heavy furniture day and a BIG Thank You to Andrew and Mark from our yacht club for helping Phil. We cleaned the apartment Friday and Saturday and have given up the keys!
So when I ask Phil how we are adjusting to being on the boat, he slowly says “fine”‘ how am I doing? I’m not sleeping as well, and typical for Phil, he is sleeping better. I miss my recliner, but that’s the way things go. He is tired of getting ready for the trip though, as we are having problems with the fuel pump for our outboard motor so he’s taking it in to have it fixed. Every day there is something for him to do. But back to adjusting. I really like our new Caframo fans!!! It’s wonderful to have a breeze in the V-berth when you’re in the lee from the head. It’s been cold, but with the heater and quilts, we are warm enough. The solar panels are working good. Phil woke this morning and the charger wasn’t even on. It’s nice visiting with other lives aboards down at the club and work is going well for now. Our boats is cluttered (hear the understatement?), but I do have intentions to weed out items that we won’t need for cruising that I currently need for working. And Phil can’t find the stamps!
Phil has been taking trips to various storage units to drop off items that go into storage, and I need to go out to Kay’s to log into our spreadsheet what is going where. We are trying to be much better this time in logging what is being put where. Foolishly last time, we thought that we would remember. Now we know better. We looking forward to having co-workers come visit Sunday and last visits with family and friends before we leave.
