A Little More Work Done....

A few posts ago, I said that there was a little more room in the workshop...  Well, not for much longer if I keep finding a new home for more tools...  

Here is a picture of our salt water, deep sea fishing rods, that we use when we are trolling behind the boat underway.  With any luck they won't get in the way if we need to use the bunk for sleeping.

I may be jinxing myself, but I have made a list of the jobs left to do.  I have to finish some kind of exhaust system for the generator, get a transom arch built, re-wire the masts, repair the keel, refinish & paint the bottom, weld a bracket for the watemaker high pressure pump, repair the bracket that holds one of the anchors, install the curtains, replace the front windows....  I am sure I have missed a few things but this list looks doable...  If anyone wants to help, just let me know....

For mother's day we bought Shelley a really useful gift....  An industrial sewing machine and a set of REALLY good kitchen knives...  Now some of you may think that this is not a good gift, but believe me when I say that Shelley is REALLY excited about the knives....  Hmmm, I wonder what that means....  Oh well....
