Getting so close I can almost smell and feel the sea spray. We are in the final stages of our prep work, which include but are not limited to, (because when you fix one thing on a boat, another thing breaks) bottom paint - replacing the sail drives - waxing - polishing every nook and cranny - fixing the water maker, that just broke, ect. ect. ect. Our departure lists still remain as long as they were because when we cross off one thing we add another. But all in all we are feeling good about our progress, and feel we may actually be ready to leave as planed on September 1st.
