Cruising Is Working on Your Boat In Exotic Places

There's an old sang that goes "Cruising is working on your boat in exotic places". Well this is true. It's true, however; after you have spent countless hours (and more so, dollars) getting ready to leave the dock and get to said 'exotic places'.

So let's get up to speed and get excited about the projects that've ensued on S/V Silver Girl and S/V Miaplacidus since September 6, 2016 in anticipation of Departure Day (which we'll call January 10th):

And finally, nearing the finish line without having destroyed a perfectly happy relationship - Check!

Stay tuned for the tantalizing tale and explanation of how to complete each project in future posts!

Best breezes and serene seas, proper pirates!
