So now for a short mid week update.
I received a call from our new Dock master, we need to replace our dock lines. We noticed this weekend that the cheap Chinese rope had not stood up well to the Florida sun. As we had not been moving the rot had gone unnoticed.
New lines are on order.
Also on order:
- exhaust hose
- Forward motor mounts
- Chart plotter flush mount kit
- Manual oil pressure gauge
Things I have yet to install that are on hand:
- VHF radio
- RAM mic for VHF
- AIS transceiver
- New secondary halyard for topping lift
- Hold down straps for gear in cabin
The kicker is we were not planning to go out this weekend and I had a feeling we are not going to be working on her for at least a month or two as the baby is really close, but the dock masters call has pretty much made a visit go on the schedule.
We also need to contact a diver to clean her bottom and I have to tune the rig with my new Loos gauge and we need to measure and order a mainsail cover. Mehhhh….
I think we will just go out Friday and eat at Chef Larrys after we put on the new lines and then come home. I have a lot of work to do around the house to prepare for our little girls arrival.
Last night (Monday) Lori and I took a tour of Winnie Palmer hospital since we plan on delivering there. A very nice hospital.
After the tour ended around 9 pm we were sitting in the waiting room of the Triage area filling out Lori’s preregistration paperwork. As she filled in the blanks a lady came to the admissions counter and stated she thought the baby was coming. This got our attention and we both looked up just as her water broke. Wow, never seen that happen before and it kinda brings it all home…..
