Several days aboard Pelagia... working on projects (at the dock)

Well, we did indeed get "on" Pelagia this weekend. But not away from the dock. The combination of terrible rainy weather and the "pressure" of so many projects (from small to large) helped us decide to stay home and spend the past 4 days working on Pelagia. As they say, "cruising = working on the boat in exotic places" (well, some think Vancouver is exotic...).

My first little project: get the new Cruz Pro RH-60 engine tachometer hooked up/installed in the cockpit. Next, was to turn the "wireless" Uniden Wham4X to a "wired" (i.e., powered) remote mike. (Why? Because its battery never holds a charge! Useless!)  Reviews on these two coming up.

M. decided she wanted to tackle some of the interior wood. It has been at least 4-5 years since any of the interior has been touched up (i.e., at least since we purchased Pelagia), and some trim in the galley and head, as well as the salon teak table, are looking a little tired. However, now (a few days later) the interior is already looking pretty damn good again! (Trouble is, now she wants to do all the interior!)

So, we are both recovering well from our recent injuries, and plan to try a return to the ski slopes this weekend. Fingers crossed.
