It all goes back to mobility...
Finally, after years of craving a new dark green paint job, Enola (ALONE spelled backward and also a character in Waterworld - the orphan who had the only map of dry land tattooed on her back was named Enola) was hauled out to the boatyard and is currently drying from her brand new paint job & bottom job. She will be oh so pretty once she's back in the water.
Boat yards are magical spheres to me - all kinds of hectic activity going on. Dreams on the make. Plans being schemed to get the heck outta dodge (or just the idea of it). Paint jobs; valves replaced; prop being replaced; thru-hulls being installed. This is all the madness I got going at the moment. But, she should launch back to her slip soon and next up is the radar system, a fresh varnish coat, some electrical work and the installation of the anchor windlass. Oh the joy. Finally, one project coming to a slight, slight level out.
Which brings me to - I went and looked at airstreams this weekend. There is a new Airstream only dealer out in San Gabriel (home of best Chinese food EVER) and they are loaded with new airstreams. I'm digging on the International 23D. Nice layout. My Rover can haul it weight-wise. Seems perfect. A used one of course. Baja plans, camping plans, star gazing life plans. They are all coming together.
And, GD - what a pretty boat.
