We've been taking a break from writing and posting since Christmas knowing full well once our re-build project begins our days will be non-stop until it's completion.
Yesterday I rented a storage locker and today we begin removing our belongings off Lealea. First off will be clothes and food which will be thoroughly inspected and sorted. Clothes we have held onto for sentiment rather than practicality will be given away and it looks as if we will be eating a lot of beans and rice over the next few months but it will be nice to get the boat cleaned out.
I will be stepping back from the veterinary clinic for the next few months while we are working on the boat and am looking forward to my time in Andy's shop helping with the interior woodwork.
Chuck placed our Fisheries order last Tuesday and we should see the materials arriving by barge next Wednesday. The hard lumber from Edensaw Woods will be on the same barge and then we only need the balance of the lumber to arrive from Ketchikan.
The sun is shining, temperatures are in the 30's and it is a beautiful day to get this project started.
One last thing, sorry.....
