We Have a New Floor!

July 2, 2013

Last Sunday was pretty festive around here. It was the day of the Gay Pride march in NYC and there were lots of boats flying their rainbow flags in celebration. Following on the heels of the Supreme Court ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional, it was a pretty momentous occasion.


Meanwhile, back on Mata Hari Rich was getting it done. He spent most of the weekend working on our new bed (which is still a work in progress so stay tuned!) and a new cockpit sole (aka, “floor”). Thanks to the new floor we don’t have to worry about breaking our toes on the pad eye that holds the block and tackle for the mainsheet.

A nice new place to stand in the cockpit, a more comfortable place to sleep, and now all of our friends can get married. Not a bad week!

      Yes, you do! Open invitation for you and the little one. Maybe after she comes back from vacay?
