Survival Suit.

I was hesitant at first to mention my project to my friends, thinking of the old adage: “If you fail remove all evidence that you tried…” Too late for that! Sometimes good things do happen when people know what you are attempting to do. My friend Ed, coffee shop buddy emeritus and Knowledgeable in all things maritime gave me a survival suit tonight! He used to be in the merchant marine and still has contacts… Since until I can afford a bona-fide liferaft my dinghy will have to do, an exposure suit would be extremely useful to abandon ship. Let’s hope it never gets to that…

Things are slowing down a bit here, and it is very frustrating not to be able to go work on the boat. I still need to finish the inside cabin painting, a small area of the deck and cockpit, and a number of small repairs before even thinking of leaving. I hope to make another trip at the end of the month. Stay tuned for updates!

Flattr this!
