Of course it is hard to get things done when it is so nice out. Went for a little trip on the neighborís Trojan F36. What a beautiful boat.

Have you researched exactly what is required in a proper propane locker? There are quite a few requirements.

Sure have, that was enough to make me follow in the footsteps of Ranger Tugs and put them on the swim platform in a nice fiberglass enclosure. That is why I went with 11 pound tanks, too keep the box short and narrow.

Sounds good. I have seen so many DIY propane lockers that were just downright dangerous. Glad you researched it.

Since the COVID-19 has closed our marina, we have been working from home on what we can get done. The Mrs. Made new decals for the boat.

Really she can make anything, it is a joint effort. I drew the emblem on my iPad from a picture, then she digitized it and make the stickers. Here is the picture I used

i saw a washer added to stbr side forward of the head/v-berth after shaving some of the berth.The install looked clean and the single guy living on MK1 was thrilled to scratch laundromat visits .Looking forward to your photos ,I'm certain you and your wife will find a spot.So where's it going?

If you spend much time on the boat you will love the washer/dryer as long as it is the vented model.

Our boat is in a barn about a mile from our house. We can go work on it whenever we want to. The last week we have been power washing our deck and then staining it. Today we stained about 1500 square feet so we are about halfway done. Tomorrow we will work on the boat since winds are going to be in the 25 mph range. We have 5 fairly minor jobs to do on the boat then we could launch if the marina could launch us. Probably 1 or 15 May they may be able to start working again.

Well we got lucky toady, we went to the marina by appointment to check on our boat. We were only suppose to there for 30 minutes. However they let us stay the rest of the day, so we took the boat out!

For our first real run besides switching dock slips at the marina, it was an absolute blast to take her out. We only went out for just over an hour, and she ran great the whole time with zero issues. Canít wait for business as usual!
