This was the last I saw of KJ’s old moorage, as we moved her up the river to a new spot where she can get out without a call 4 hours ahead to the railroad bridge, without crossing the flats (which, even at high tide, only left her 1-2′ under the keel ~ I whiteknuckled it every time), and hopefully, where access will make it easier to sell her.
Yes, I’ve put my love on the market, half-hoping I don’t get a buyer, but knowing that it’s best if I do. She’s just too much for me to take care of without Greg, mostly financially. I’m tossing around plans for the future, but don’t know for certain what I’ll do yet. Maybe a trade, downsizing to a smaller boat? I don’t know. I do like the new moorage as well, so remaining a liveaboard is a tempting option. Only time will tell right now.
Here are a few of the new neighbors. There’s still a lot to watch over here; the tugs go in and out frequently. There are harbor seals even this far up the river (I’m in mostly fresh water now), so that made me happy.
Heater updates to follow. At least we have a diagnosis now…but it’s a larger issue than I would have liked.
Meantime, my darling mechanic (who has taken it as a personal mission to take care of me ~ no complaints here) hooked up the propane heater to a larger tank today and I am reasonably comfortable and warm.
