What does the boat want for Christmas

With Christmas coming, I'm finally going to finish my months-long roof job. I'd like to do a couple of new windows and really get the boat water tight. I may even dive in for some new electronics at one of the fall boat shows. Money, money, money.

Don (Moonstruck) sent me this photo of Eric's boat getting her Christmas work early. Shoulda figured.

If that lasts over 4 hours, Eric should get Willie some medical help.

My boat told me it wants a new diesel heater for Christmas. It has one all picked out from Sig Marine and I am making plans to install it this fall. It will be in addition to our Hurricane furnace and will be installed in the salon. It should help alot while we are living aboard at Friday Harbor this winter. Then off to Alaska again this spring. It will be a great addition for that trip also.

Did that actually come from the factory that way or was it added on?
I just never saw it before on anything smaller than a freighter

Tony, that's called photoshop! Nice work on that Don! LOL.

My boat wants us to finally refinish the floors! (I know, I know, SOLE). Hopefully we will do that before Christmas.

The Eagle could use a bulbous bow.

At the January 2014 boat show we plan on buying:

Back up radar and charts
VHF with DSC and AIS
Life raft
Emergency Beacons
Life vest and dry suits

Then in the spring 2014

Go through the 671 and gen set
Twin bilge keels and maybe bulbous bow
AC/DC/Propane refrigerators for stern deck

Then maybe still on the list is

Rebuild/new water maker
Fish stabilizers
Front mast and sails

Just your basic standard stuff for remote and/or long off shore cruising. Even if we don't the Eagle will be one bad ass boat.

PG, wish I could take credit for that, but it was Larry's (Healhustler) work. You could fool anyone with that one. Check the lighting and blending. I would love to be there when Eric sees this.

"What does the boat want for Christmas"

As always a few hundred more hours of tinkering.
