Some boat jobs are fun! (And simply cosmetic.) Rick and I agreed that our lovely Nyon needed a little something. We decided to add art to the decor. Being an artist, I jumped at the idea. Our various locker doors are being turned into canvases for yours truly... It all began with Rick's octopus' garden. I illustrated an undersea scene for the head as per his suggestion. He named the octopus Ethel.
Here are the Galley Lockers, The wood trim needs to be refinished, but the painting is done. This project was fun, and it certainly is a reflection of our colourful and eclectic personalities!

Of course, we had to do other jobs this weekend, like re-routing the bilge hose, and upgrading the drain hoses in the galley and head. I did a lot of that, with Rick's help. Working on boats means, working in cramped spaces more often then not. Or having to work in odd positions. It's all part of the... challenge.
Minor injuries ensued and our shortage of band-aids became evident - here is the last of our pirate band-aids being put to good use. In the end we got ourselves some brand spanking new drain hoses installed.
In the meantime, Rick replaced the Cockpit drains. To access the cockpit drains and work on them means... Emptying the cockpit lockers. Now most of you know that Rick works in the marine industry and therefore has A LOT of tools. They live in the cockpit lockers. Some jobs are messy. And some jobs are in particularly tight places... This job was both.
