Janurary 5, 2016 projects North Palm Beach, FL

Today I took laundry to the marina laundry facility again.  I’m not sure what we would have done for 2 weeks if we didn’t have Bob and Olivia as such gracious hosts.  We may have started doing laundry by hand.  I also was able to catch up on my blog.

Dave worked on projects with his new parts that he bought yesterday.  He mounted our stern dinghy light onto the 4 foot PVC pipe.  Next he will have to make a mount on the stern of the dinghy.  He plans to use a fish rod holder for it to can stand in.   Of course that will come in handy as a fishing rod holder, too.

Dave has been debating on whether to have fresh water or sea water for our wash down at the bow.  Today he disconnected the wash down pump from the fresh water.  He will change that to sea water in a future project.  After cleaning your anchor and chain with sea water, you can always get a bucket of fresh water to do the final rinse.  The way it is set up now, we waste a lot of fresh water rinsing mud and seaweed off of our anchor and chain that just came out of sea water.

Then he spent some time on the SSB getting weather forecasts.
