Thanks for the welcome, and the tip about avoiding Anchoring discussions...
We've been improving her systems and removing some prior 'flaws'.
It seems like the previous owners used exterior House paint (fortunately not on the Hull), so I have the joy of slowly repainting the entire boat with the correct paint.
I do most of the painting and all canvas work/sewing. Kevin does the "real" work, installing electronics, etc.
We DID just install a manual anchor windlass that we purchased from Marine Consignment in Fall River, after Kevin rebuilt it and painted it. I know this is 'anchoring' talk but I wont' say anything about the size, length of chain, etc.
