Bettie is as ready as she is going to be. Today Dave and I spent the day wrapping up everything could. The new anchor roller is on. Dave sealed the final stanchion. We fitted the rear part of the Bimini with the light in case we need them at night. Dave just has the middle section to do this week along the last of the cushions. We brought the pair of 17' sea kayaks down and loaded them up with the mast, along with a bunch of other stuff. I began to stow away some of the gear and tools and trying to look at what can go where. I finished up a few thing on the engine.
There is lots of work to be done in the coming days and nights. On the next trip down on Sunday, we plan to bring most of what will go on the boat including some of the food and water and then on the 27th and morning of the 28th we will bring down anything that is left.
Bettie may not be as done as we would like her to be but she is ready to head down river. The stuff that is left can be done while motoring down the river. We are as ready as we can be, too.
