On July 1 we finished loading our stuff onto First Edition. There is a massive amount of clothes, safety equipment, cooking gear, home office supplies, all the junk necessary to live our lives while afloat. All of this has to be crammed into 44 x 13 feet, our living quarters. On Monday the movers come to take our furniture into storage for the duration of our cruise.
We had hoped to be on the way by now but our boat is not ready. We have doubts that our refrigeration is working, and our autopilot's computer or compass is kaflooie. So, visiting Maine may not be an option for us this summer. On July 10th we close on the house sale so we will move on board whether or not she is ready. Hopefully our dock-sucking will be shortlived.
