Caribbean Soul had been out of the water for about 6 months. These pictures are of her splashing a few days before Christmas 2009. We revarnished the teak rail, recoated the topsides, and cleaned the decks while she was out. We also restitched lots of canvas and had our sails restitched and improved. Efforts to save our failing fridge did not work, so replacing the fridge and working on the wind generator will become in-the-water projects.
This is a quick video of our uneventful trip down the waterway to the Beaufort mooring. Early January 2010 we are flying to Denmark as daughter Karen is delivering her first child--our first grandchild. Karen and her husband Drew have welcomed me (Penny) to join them in the delivery room for the main event. John will hang out in the waiting room.
