Moved in

We moved onto the boat last week. Wednesday was our first night sleeping on her and thursday we took our first ride out. 5 hours to travel what in a car would be around 4 miles 😂😂😂

The kids have all made themselves at home and seem more relaxed. Maybe because their garden is now 100’s of acres of countryside.

Just in time to hibernate for the winter. Snuggled infront of the fire.

Day 6 of fit out

Progress looks low so far even though a lot of hours have gone into it already.

We have handles and locks on doors and hatches. A tiller bar and handle. Solar panels and head lights. Fenders are on and the satalite and wifi antenna is going up today ready for the electrician to connect it all on friday.

 

Meanwhile inside we had a small delay waiting for the melamine coated marine ply to arrive so didnt really get started until tuesday. However we have three carpenters hard at work now so in just two days things are already starting to take shape.

We have stairs although not completely finished. The tops of each lift for storage and will be stained and varnished.

We also have the bottoms of the walls up and the front end is almost finished already 😃😃
