Well today SOLSTICEís 240v electrical circuitry and components were put under the microscope at by an electrical inspector and she passed. I also had to fit a smoke detector but thatís cool. Safety first I guess.

Not since Nov 25, 1995! Soon to be 23 yrs. C&S - with no slip.

Was a raucous, fun, hard working, businessman, party boy previously!! Since 11/25/1995 just a fun, hard working, business boy!!!

Still like an occasional party; just never indulge in the bubbly nor any illicit fun concoction.

And, quit cigs Dec 18 of same year. Cleaned up my act completely at 43 yrs. old

Writing [regarding future health and ermmm - "some" other items] was on the wall. I read the script carefully to my future and decided "clean" was by far the best alternative!!

Still having a fun life at 66 with decades to come [hopefully]; have been doing so for couple decades of C&S... i.e., one day at a time!! LOL

Couple of hours on the boat today. Put trim pieces that will get painted for around the hatch opening that also finished off the upholstery. I installed some grab rails on the inside and fixed off some light switches then cut the hole in the external of the roof for the Furuno Raydome wiring, the TV antenna wiring and then cut the main hole for the wiring chute from the roof to inside the cabin then down through the floor to go in for the Solar panels wiring, the VHF radio and the GPS wiring.

Greetings,
Mr. A. "You do more in couple hrs. than most could accomplish in a day..." Where were you in geography class? Don't you realise Australia is in the SOUTHERN hemisphere and as a result, 12 hours is actually 21 hours? Similarly, 15 hours is in reality 51 hours. Sheesh. Get with the program man! (Looking good Mr. H.)

You are on the down hill coast. Dont muck it up now.
You will always find things that could have been better or things to do. Unless it leaks, you can wait for the off-boating season, haul the boat and work on it.
The first season is always a shake-down cruise.

It looks as if you have full standing headroom below. If so, that is so nice. Not many boats have standing headroom going forward. Ok, not many boats I have been aboard had full standing headroom forward.
