I am awaiting parts to finish many jobs, including the rewire but I am happy the major jobs needed before taking the boat out are now done. I have been doing a lot of odd jobs in the last couple of days, including putting up picture frames, cleaning, getting rid of a lot of stuff. I threw out a lot of clothes before coming down, I went through the rest today and got rid of about 1/3 of what I had left.
I plan to take the dinghy out for a run tomorrow and later Lady Cindy under motor. I only plan to run down the river and back but it will give me confidence in both the outboard and the main engine.
