Buried under 250cm of snow, we are shovelling on a daily basis, hoping to see the end on the horizon...
Our plans are still a GO however, we still have a couple of loose ends that need to be tied.
- We still have to sell our property
- Finish to pay the boat
- Replace 2 sails (Jib and Main)
- Change all the port holes and hatches
- Buy the electronics (Chartplotter, Radar)
- Install the solar panels and the wind generator
- Figure out the dinghy conundrum
- Find a suitable liferaft
Those are all on the « to do » list for the next 2 years.
When we first bought the boat, we had this utopian dream of outfitting the boat and getting it ready in 5 years. Well, what do you know... life gets in the way sometimes and that 5 years project is turning into a 8 years project.
I think initially, there was a tinge of disappointment but now, I realize it was all for a good reason.
We can make all the plans we want but in the end, we are not in control of much, so might as well go with the flow...
We are keeping course, aiming for a departure soonish! Enjoying time with family and friends and embracing the difficulties that come our way. Life isn't perfect and if all these small set backs are the worst we are gonna experience, well bring it on...
