The Final Push is On

We’ve returned from our travels which included 17 states, 7,500 miles of driving and about 60 nights away from home. Makes me tired just writing it. Now we’re back home in Turah, MT concentrating on getting Noodin ready and also getting our personal belongings squared away. Noodin leaves here on a truck about May 11th and we hope to be no more than a week behind. We’ve sold a few things this week but it’s primarily been a boat week. Phebe has been working on her sewing projects (dodger and helm seat) as well as crawling around in Noodin’s lockers squaring away some items for the SSB radio (marine HAM) install. I’ve been tinkering with a few different things including getting the new batteries installed (about 500ah of golf cart batteries), installing a custom protective cover over the new electrical area, and installing a new bi-color bow light. There’s been more work done but that’s what comes to mind. On a negative note, we discovered propane locker vent hoses that needed replacing and a manual windlass that binds up occasionally and needs servicing. Anyway, we seem to keep busy all day. Here’s more of the story in pictures.
