Meanwhile, Belle is getting the once over. We have removed every piece of deck hardware and teak that we can in preparation for painting the deck. Believe me there are dozens of hours of work here. Retirement? Ha:)
And why, you may ask? Well, we somewhat bashfully admit to a course correction in the adventure plans. As soon as Belle is gone we will archive this site and will be moving to a new site were we will describe the restoration and adventures of Shallow Minded, our new to us Bolger AS-29 live aboard cruiser. Over in Hampstead, North Carolina she patiently waits for the refitting to continue.
She has a remarkable amount of storage and general living area with full standing headroom in the galley and a full size siting and dining area. The aft cabin boasts a full size bed and chart table and forward is a nice large head area with a composting Airhead toilet. There is also a shower area. At 4 tons she is no light weight. But at 13 inches draft she lives up to her name.
Here is the link to the new site which is under construction. Wish us luck as we think inside "the box."
