We continue to mostly hunker-down at our marina in Vero Beach. The COVID rates have been on the rise over the last several weeks & will continue to increase, especially as more snowbirds flock down after the holidays. We are being even more careful now, relying mostly on grocery & other delivery services (which works out well since we turned in our rental car last week).
Projects are a constant reminder that we live on a boat! This one was a 2 hour fix after 2 months of head-scratching. Rainy days would result in a tiny puddle of water accumulating under the galley fridge. It turned out the fuel fill deck plate was leaking, running along the hose, under the fuel tank, thru a weep hole, down the inside of the hull to about 5′ away from the source!
Other fun projects have included re-installing our re-built watermaker & the arduous task of waxing the hulls.
Florida weather has been kind to us with daytime temps mostly in the 70’s to low 80’s.
The big news is the Christmas weather – the coldest in 21 years! Floridians are actually excited to have a Christmas in the 50’s! Nighttime to the low 40’s … burrrrr! The news stations are even warning people to watch out for iguanas falling out of the sky (some sleep in the trees, get stunned by the cold & fall down)!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all! Keep safe!!
