At Home in St. Thomas

For the next few years Mowzer will call the CYOA docks at St. Thomas home.  Arrival happened earlier this week and we were thrilled to receive the first pics from Kirsten of Mowzer as she settles in.

Like the passing of the Olympic torch, Laurent and crew have delivered Mowzer safely across the ocean and left us with this passing shot.

Now the fun begins as it is just a week before we will be able to put our own feet aboard, but in the meantime, there is much to be done.  Electrical system updates, canvas installation, all the onboard supplies for linen and galley, etc - the To-Do List is quite lengthy!  Mowzer has been installed at the docks, just next to Arcola - the Athena 38 we sailed last March with John, Eleanor and Carl.

 I guess squeezing into tight places becomes a necessity on a boat - glad to see the hat is safely stowed!  With the sun beaming down out in the cockpit, the canvas has all been installed and looks great.  The davits are on and work in the engine compartments is underway.
Back home in Ottawa, we haven't had much snow this winter but there is still a foot of the white stuff on the ground.  Talking to Nancy, she said it's been a strange winter down there as well with lighter than usual winds from the S/SE - sounds delightful and we're eagerly anticipating our visit.

  1. Congrats on the new boat. By the way that's my hats, and but for that matter under the port aft bed. You will be happy to know that the must do list is done. Looking forward to seeing you all this week.
