Two weeks without an update? How many of the 675 items have you closed out and when do you see yourself taking the boat out for another test run? Looking forward to a few photos including the PH.

Just finished the salon repairs today. Major milestone. And only a few things are left on the commissioning list, however one of them requires a haul out and there is a 6 week lead time for that. In the mean time we are ticking everything else off the list. Just lined up a few sea trials today for ABT stabilizers, main and wing engine application reviews (manufacturer sign off on the installations), a bunch of electronics tuning and adjustment, run out the whole anchor chain to confirm marking and length, and just some general exercise. Wired up my 30A 120V shore cord today and tested that to be sure it works as expected.

Repairs are all done and you would never know anything happened. We have mostly moved our stuff aboard and are awaiting resolution of a few issues before we hit the seas.

Maybe late summer or fall. Or maybe just Canada if things open up.

So much room..! However, Peter, one thing that I always think of when I see a saloon like that is, how do you stop the furniture sliding all over the place then the going gets a bit rough..? I doubt that the stabs could completely eliminate that..? Especially thinking of what happened to that lovely cabin with the stuff they had just stacked in there for the delivery trip moving around, and that was on a huge cargo ship. Is there some way of fixing couches/tables to the floor, or what..?

Yes, an important point. The sofa will have hooks that secure it in place so it can't move around. Same with the other loose furniture, but we don't yet have it all figured out exactly. My thinking so far is that they will need to be moved to the wall, and secured together & to the wall or floor. There is a rug now, so lots of "grip" holding things in place - at least until it's not enough Lamps and everything on a counter surface are held down with earthquake putty. That works incredibly well for smaller items.

What it takes to secure stuff depends on the furniture. I have a pair of freestanding bar stools in my salon. With them rotated to lightly wedge against a wall, they stay put running on plane into 4 footers. The only time I've seen them fall involved a 25-ish degree roll from a really bad wake at anchor. The heavy club chair I've got sinks into the carpet a bit and from what I've seen, if that thing moves, I'm probably pushing the AVS limit of the boat...
