Twelve months ago I started my liveaboard life.
Since then I have changed boats, gained a Montgomery 6’8″ dinghy and disposed of most of my possessions. Sadly 99% of my efforts to sell my things has failed so a lot of very high quality stuff has been donated to charity. Had hoped for some bit of money to go towards freedom chips. This is a great example that most of what we spend money on is worthless crap.
I’m happy and looking forward to another year afloat and gunkholing around the Salish Sea.
At this moment a frustration is the Honda outboard as it isn’t running and I’m STILL tied to a dock at Port Townsend!
The motor failure has essentially removed the equivalent of a very nice solar panel system from of SWALLOW’S decks … or forced me to go back to work/servitude a couple months earlier than I wish/want/forced. I’ll also have no trust in the motor after this and it will be some time before I don’t stress each time in need to use the damn thing.
My dad is coming over to visit me for a couple of days. Be nice to have him distract me from thinking about the outboard.
