The List of Doom

Meet the book of lists that will rule our life for the next three months. We have to get our ground tackle up to snuff, clean some fuses, add some plugs, something about a sump pump, maybe rebuild the head (everyone's favorite!), fix a leak over the nav station, paint, varnish, get a new bimini and cockpit cushions, haul out the boat and about a million other little things. Not to mention the list of stuff we have to buy. Whew. But look how excited I am about it!

Today, I'm scraping the caulk from the edge of the aluminum toerail so that we can run a bead of 4200, an adhesive sealant that keeps out water and will hopefully halt the corrosion that's eating the toerail alive. And Vlad is going reinstall our windlass. Good times. I'm really looking forward to the time when the list of doom is reduced to the list of only minor disaster. Someday, someday.


  1. "List of Doom" - that's a good one! So true, so true! Word to the wise: protect your young and flexible joints when doing all the repetitive work like caulk scraping. That stuff really wears a body out.
    I finally figured out how to see your recent posts. I didn't realize I had to add a google reader gadget to my igoogle page. Now I just have to remember to visit my Igoogle page! I kept thinking I would get an email when there was a new post. Sometimes I'm not real 'ept' when it comes to technology.

  2. I'll make sure to stretch first! Oh, and I added a "follow us by email" gadget to make the tech stuff easier. I meant to do that in the first place, but I slacked. Sorry about that!

  3. Yea! Thanks for adding that. Now I will not miss anything.
