Sailboats don't count! You were probably in the shade of all that fabric waving in the air above you.

Well she is finally back in the water and hopefully we will clear Lauderdale tomorrow and head back to the Bahamas and the island.
We will take a 3 or 4 day trip so we can relax a little!

Capstan is from Australia. That's why the picture is upside down.
Have fun on your trip and post some pictures.

It has been quite a while.
Thought I might post the Bad Monkey swinging on a Exuma Park mooring. She was there for the duration of hurricane Matthew. We had 130+ here. Still haven't been to see her but my friends sent me these pics to put a smile on my face.
I will try and update this with my continued works to her in the near future.
Hope everyone else came out OK from the hurricane.

Aft cabin starting to go back together with a little bit of paintwork.
Boat still on mooring and don't see much work being done for the next month!! Then it will be Christmas nearly, so that means middle January!!!
At work we are rebuilding some Mahogany doors in the boat compound.
I am saving shortened pieces and will put them through the thicknesser and use them in the main salon and maybe the floor in the heads!.

I like a simplistic interior.it don't take much to make me happy on a boat.

That's some major combustion chamber damage.What happen to weld and crack that piston?

Sorry guys, that was from Cat 3406 which provides power to the island, not the boat. Yes dropped valve. Not sure what happened there!

Looking very smart, Stan. As usual, you and Monkey set the bar high. Best wishes in the new year.

Thanks Guys,
I thought I took some more pics of the interior- but can't find them. Just these 2! Will have some more in a week or so.
Trying to make it "Beachy" looking. As you can see none of the trim has been done around the windows etc.


Have a great time in 2017!

Stan and Jen
