I have received a few hundred e-mails asking if I am OK because I have not posted to the blog for so long. I was waiting to answer until I knew if I was OK or not. I am still not sure if I am OK yet. I do know that 7 people who I considered friends have passed on in the last 5 weeks and 2 more have terminal cancer. I can say that I have learned to appreciate TODAY.
I was a bit nervous after I bought our new boat because there was so much that I thought she needed. This took nearly my entire summer’s worth of time and resources. These are the BEFORE pictures:
I’ll be honest here, she was not much to look at and I love most any boat. What I saw here was potential. I replaced the standing rigging, the running rigging, the life lines, the boarding ladder, the bimini top, the tiller handle, the engine, the mainsail cover along with adding a stern rain, a jib bag, life line netting, and a complete new paint job. I ran all the running rigging back to the cockpit. She is looking sweet today and my original doubts are now gone. I have sail her in some heavy wind and she out performed my expectations.
I now have a Sailrite LSZ-1 sewing machine but that is for another blog. Krazzee Kora has become a labor of love and she is here to stay.
