If you'd asked me yesterday, I would have told you that we would never get out of here next week.  Today, however, it seems to be coming together.  We've gone from every cabin being a filthy disaster area to something that resembles a habitable, if still cluttered, boat.  The varnishing is done and the galley and heads are clean.  Some of the new curtains are hung.  Almost all of the spare junk has been removed.  Anchors and chain is aboard. The sails are bent on.  We can do this.

There are still endless tasks to perform and we have yet to start the engine, but that is coming soon.  Tomorrow, I need to replace the burners on the propane stove, which involves cutting larger holes in the sheet metal.  The refrigerators are clean and functioning, though, and we even have an icemaker.  We may not be able to go anywhere, yet, but we can make cocktails.
