    I took your advice some months back and will show pictures when I get around to sanding and painting them.

    Thanks, Brendan.
    We haven't got out on it much, last ride being in mid-May, as we have been taking the house apart and putting it back together. Today I built a vanity. Last week we got our toilet and bathtub re-installed. It was removed with all house furnishings including door trim and baseboards so the terrazzo floor could be re-ground and polished and the bath re-tiled. Meanwhile I have been designing new cabinets for the kitchen. We moved back into the house on Saturday. Now it is the start of hurricane season. Colin just blew by and dumped a bunch of rain and high tides as it passed. Hopefully we can get out on it this weekend for a short trip between thunderstorms, but that is not likely to be, given the forecast.

    Now that the cabinets are built, Mrs. wants me to install a trolling motor so now I will re-do my nav lights to accommodate a bow mounted one.

    The top mounted combo light will be replaced with shark eye LED lights.

    I am unable to load photos onto postings. Something is haywire with my computer.

    Now it worked okay. What is the nautical equivalent of gremlins?

    The motor was bumping against the squat boxes but now it won't do that anymore.

    In order to install the trolling motor I had to give it a nose job.

    Work continues.

    Some wood butchery happened today where the shark eye nav lights will be installed.

    Thanks. That is a good idea. I figure the little outboard will serve adequately as a rudder for the trolling motor. It(trolling motor) is mostly for show anyway. If I need to do it a stationary rudder can be c-clamped to the transom.

    Remodeling has been done and I am happy with it. Picture shows Port of the Islands Marina dock.
