We are all settled in and the interior of Artemo is organized! It is really HOT, constant sweaty faces and frizzy hair. We haven't been doing a lot of actual cooking but last night we had a nice meal together at our table. Corn, soup, pita's and salad! Yum.
So we found another surprise on deck. We started caulking some of the leaking seams and as we dug out the old caulking on one seam from the mast we found.......you guessed it...more dry rot. Soooo Graham is heading to the wood working guys today and having a doubler made. We just do not have the time to undertake a project like redoing the entire deck and coach roof, so we will make it work, damn it!
The kids have been right in there helping and scraping. Yesterday we all got the hose out and found all of the leaks. Today we will continue caulking and clean the teak. Who knew it could get so pretty with a little cleaner and elbow grease.
We made our first trip to a nice little secluded beach in our dinghy. Fun. The kids have also been practicing in the pool for their snorkelling trips. Enjoy the day.
