We finally made the insurance company happy on the items to be repaired or replaced, so we invited a few hands to fend off if necessary, and went out! The boat handled nicely except for backing up, just as the previous owner had warned us about. I'll eventually figure it out. Woohoo!!!!

Removed fresh water vent from bilge to vent overboard and removed spade connectors and used crimp connectors for propane tank per surveyor's recommendations and insurance insistence. Now with all items accomplished we can go sailing!

Joshua Tactor was raised up the mast to replace the Windex, spinaker halyard, and clean the underside of the spreaders, great job! Dean and Jamie helped provide safety and I cranked him up.

The head sail ultraviolet protection was in need of being resewn, the main sail cover zipper was also resewn on, and the wheel cover zipper needed to be replaced. Roberta pulled out her Sailright sewing machine performing all of the above and then some, thanks Roberta!

Now evicted oyster, he had already expired and long since past.
The bilge water was too high for me so I am moving the float switch to a lower portion of the bilge. All sea creatures were evicted from the strainer system, now we have our home to ourselves.

Here are the before and after shots of the Sanitation system replacment. It took 4 days and with my chief engineer and friends advice, Dean Calkins, it is a lot simpler and completly meets USCG standards. Oh, I should mention without Deans hair dryer to expand the hoses over the barbs, I know personally they will not go on, thanks Dean (I'm always learning.....)! The macerator to be installed.
