So everything that we ordered at the Miami Boat Show seems to be arriving as planned. The Mantus anchor comes un-assembled via Fed-Ex and is a simple galvanzied 6 bolt assembly. It really is a cool set up! I cannot wait to use the anchor, judging from the videos that Mantus has on thier site it the anchor sets incredibly quick and doesn't let go until you want it to.
The Anchor windlass arrived Friday as well, it’s big and heavy and I am going to have to mount it as a new installation beause it doesn’t match the foot print of the original one.
Everything we didn't sell at our garage sale was stored at my mom's and all of our favouite things, things we wanted with us on the boat, were loaded into bins and traveled with us in the Motorhome to Florida. We unloaded it all into the cockpit of the Catamaran. But it all had to find a permanent place somewhere onboard. Really it's just like moving into a new house, all your stuff arrives in boxes or bins and you begin the task of putting it all away in a new home. The cockpit has gone from this chaotic bin filled mess to almost completely clear of bins and clutter! Krista has done an amazing job of finding places for almost all of our things, I’m not sure where exactly…”Hon, where’s my clean t-shirts…?” but it sure feels good.
We're getting closer to casting off the lines and setting sail!
