Coconut is mine, and so far I am looooving it! Yes, there’s a lot of work to be done. Funny thing, when you have a better quality boat that is actually worth investing money into, there’s a higher quality people who want to help. I think it’s great! Every night at least two people stop by to not only see the boat, or see the boat again, or to say “hi” and see how the dogs and I are doing.
I love Coconut so much so that I counted all the drawers, cabinets, doors and hanging lockers. I have five doors and three hanging lockers. The drawers and cabinets each are well into the 20’s and 30’s, I lost count there are so many! Aah! It’s amazing. I try not to cry when I dust off a drawer and put stuff in it! It’s a really big deal for me, so please bear with me.
I’ve got a long list of projects that I need to do to get the boat liveable, followed up with a haul out at the end of the month along with fixing leaks and cosmetic issues. It’s all doable, as the skin and bones of the boat are solid. I’ve been sleeping on the boat for the past week and have migrated from the sofa in the saloon to the aft cabin (that does need the most cosmetic work of it all).
I’m so thankful to have the help that I have, to have friends who are willing and excited to help me complete projects and help order parts and what not. I’m happy to be moving away from “survival mode” that I was in on the other boat. I can actually come home and relax and make a meal without putting up much of a fight.
I’m feeling a little more sane and human. A little less like a rabid animal.
My little fluffs can’t get down the steps, but that’s kind of a relief they can’t run in and out anymore.
To be continued!
