Hey loyal followers and people who found this blog by accident!
I come with an exciting update. Oceanus is here and we've actually been working on her pretty steady for the past 2 weeks or so. So far we have cleaned, scrubbed, sanded, and cleaned again. This morning we spent a few hours on cleaning and taping in preparation for painting the grip on the deck. We figure we will start with putting the deck back together which means painting and re-attaching all the hardware.
We've actually made quite a bit of progress. Grip painting starts tomorrow at first light.
On another note, we spent an hour or so on labour day sailing with Ian, a friend of Alistair's on his Tanzer 26.
Believe it or not, this was actually my first time sailing with sails and not bouncing around chop using the motor. It was a great moment for me, very peaceful without the buzzing of an engine... And it was a gloriously beautiful day.
We are so broke it's not even funny. Paints and other boat supplies were expensive but we expected it I suppose. I know in the end it will be worth it though!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more photos after we finish painting !
