. . .okay, we're stalling. We are STILL missing the reversing contactor and the adapter to connect the motor shaft to our drive shaft, and, since the installation will tear up the whole back end of the boat for a couple of days, I'm kinda not wanting to do anything back underneath the cockpit until we can do ALL the stuff.
So we've been doing other things, brewing hard ciders, making meals, and, in general, enjoying what is being a really beautiful fall here on the Middle river.
|Filtering a wonderful new batch of pumpkin and apple cider. Tis the season.
|Filled bottles doing a bit of secondary fermentation and carbonation. Can't wait.
|Um, surely the wet stuff is supposed to be on the UNDER side of the dock, right?
Ah well, living aboard. Just part of the fun. I kid, but it IS fun, even stuff like this.
Heard from David, the gentleman who bought our shantyboat "Floating Empire" from us, and found out that he's doing a major rebuild, replacing and adding to the floatation, replacing the side walls, and, in general, doing the stuff that needs to be done to extend the life of our beloved Shanty. Good on you, Sir.
So here we sit, enjoying the leaves changing, taking trips in our little inflatable kayak, brewing beer and cider. . . .Gail is doing artwork madly (here see Life, Art, Water, her blog) and I'm currently working on two, count em, TWO new novels, one of them a sequel to The Ganymeade Protocol (which has been oft requested).
Livaboard life. Recommend it.
