7 years, 3 months, 24 days, was all it took for us to complete our little repair and get the boat in the water. So whoever was running the betting line, you can cash it in today. Thanks to all who have helped on this endeavor. It has been entertaining, amusing, educational and frustrating, sometimes all at once, but it is as finished as it needs to be. So as the song goes ..."take me to the river and drop me in the water..." we want to get started on the next phase of our sabbatical. For those of you still following our 12 step countdown, today has to be 11.5. Sea trials to follow then we will be off on the next leg of our adventure.
