Living on our "new" boat in a boatyard

We bought our boat when it was stored in a boatyard, so we're keeping her here to do some projects before we splash. I can't wait to get her in the water, but here's our story on what we've learned these first two weeks.

Congratulations! One thing I think you both will find interesting. I did! When finally in the water, motoring along, your boat suddenly seems so small!

Interesting read Nan. I'm still perusing the rest of the blog. Are you in the water yet?

No. We're still in the boatyard, working on projects. We've had a few delays on things so as soon as we get a few more done, I'll be posting about it. Let me know if the blog flows okay or makes sense. I put down my thoughts so fast, and I want to get the post online by the time I'm done that I just do a quick read through. My husband always says it sounds good, but he's a little bias.

I'm just wondering what you're doing about using the head and heating and cooling?

Best of luck and I hope you can get in the water soon.

I didn't get your message. How did you send it? There's boats being moved all the time around here, from both here & J&R. Thanks for the comment & glad you enjoyed the read.

We use the restroom and shower in the hut in the boatyard. They also have laundry in there. When we got here, my husband went and got a portable AC for the bedroom at night. We used it some at first in the salon in the day, but now we only need it at night. We get enough ventilation in the day with a fan inside.

When we had a cold snap that got in the low 40s, we used a ceramic heater. Luckily, it hasn't gotten colder then that. If it does, we'll get another one and bundle up more.

Thanks for reading & responding.

So your not in JR boat yard? I was there like three months in JR itís cheaper. Believe me your in the better one. Iíve been in Port Charlotte like going on 8 years are so. So know the area and things well. I have two houses here and two boats here. Know the ins and outs. So if you need any help let me know.
