April Blues

Here it is mid-April. My American friends have their boats merrily bobbing at the end of a dock, but poor Iris is still sitting in her cradle in the backyard waiting for launch. It will be about a month before she goes in the lake. I haven't even called the marina about a launch day, nor have I called a hauler about moving her to the lake. I so behind on the pre-launch stuff that I wanted to have sorted out that its depressing.

I need to get the teak all sanded and stained this weekend, and then reinstall it. I need to sort out the electrical, clean out the interior, and get her back in summer trim. I need to finish installing the solar vent in the head. I need to tear down the lower end of the outboard and rebuild it.

What I need is to have time on my hands and good weather. I don't see that happening anytime soon. I hope I get the solar vent and wood work done this weekend. Then I'll just have the outboard and electrical left to sort out.

We'll have to see how it goes.
