This past weekend we began our preparations for the next two Odysseys. On Saturday morning I re-stained our teak decks to make them look nice. Two hours and some labor and the decks look great and I have a nice tan! Later on Saturday we took the boat to the inner harbor to top up our diesel tanks. Then we moved the boat to her new home base for the next two weeks- Oriental Harbor Marina. We also made reservations for our Captain’s Dinner at the Trawl Door Restaurant this coming Saturday evening.
Next Saturday we will top up the water tanks (we take 212 gallons between two tanks), hose down the exterior of the boat, wax the floors downstairs, dust, and generally get Dragon Lady spiffy in preparation for her new guests! Unfortunately the new Sunbrella material that we chose to re-cover our cushions has not arrived yet, but they should be done for our Odyssey couple that is arriving the end of July.
