Sorry I’ve been a bit delinquent with my Bushranger blog…but we’ve been very busy customizing this obstinate boat!

So, there I was, all worried that with all the rockin’ and rollin’ boats seem to enjoy, my really nice (read: really sharp!) kitchen knives may become a hazard.  So, to fix that, we designed a special knife drawer!

See how lovely my knives are...and don't they fit so perfectly in their new homes...

We had the lads at the Prop Shop make an aluminum frame for the small rotating drawer under the kitchen sink (okay, guys, I know y’all are wincing every time I call it a kitchen…just go with it…after all, I’m the one who’s going to be cooking in it…) that I lined with cork and set up with dividers for each knife.

...I thought you'd like a close up of my lovely drawer...

So, what do ya’ think?

...I'm so proud!...

…I’m so proud!…

…and don’t think that Boyd’s been slacking off, either.

...Boyd's a busy boy hanging the new shower...


Nope, we now have a bran’spankin’ new shower that actually delivers HOT water!

...crappy old shower facet...

…this was the crappy old shower faucet/tap… and improved shower faucet/tap...

…and THIS is the new and improved shower faucet/tap… all organized and ready for duty!...

…the plumbing is all organized and ready for duty!…

It works! ...and it's HOT!...

…and it works!

Woo-hoo! Ya’ can’t beat that!

    And when do you pushoff?

      Well we will move aboard in about three weeks to start our sea trials. We’ll do some short trip to shake out the kinks. If all goes well we’ll start the Loop in November.

    If the water is hot, and the pipes are all labeled (who bought stock in P-Touch?), and the knives are all safely nestled in their drawers — when are you heading this way?

    you are going to be cruising in style! and here I got excited about a black garden sprayer that provides hot water on Adagio – at the end of the day – provided that sun is out! 🙂
