Of course the much much nicer weather might have something to do with feeling better. It is hard to complain about 70 degree weather the third week of February when you live, like we do, on the Upper Chesapeake Bay. To whit: spring weeds are flowering, and the shirts are coming off.

Yesterday we went out to Marshy Point Nature Center for the first time in about six months, and discovered a new trail had been put in since our last visit, our bad! It is very true however that not having a car does limit casual trips like this.

When i got up this morning i was greeted by the most incredible colors. Sunrise on the river is always beautiful, but sometimes it is unbelievably spectacular! Today was one of those mornings.

I even broke a major rule, which is don't get off the boat before you've had caffeine. The only time i have fallen was two summers ago getting off early in the morning before that first all important cup of coffee.

We have, since the last time i wrote acquired a hull for Tesla's Revenge. We jumped on the opportunity when it was offered of procuring a 29 foot sailboat hull. There are pluses and minuses to this. The boat has a deeper draft than we really wanted, meaning that it will not be possible to 'gunk hole', on the other hand we will be much more seaworthy and will not have to worry as much about certain weather and wave conditions. So we are currently work on the bottom, sealing thru hulls prior to apply barrier coat and bottom paint. The interior has been pretty much gutted, so we can rebuild to our specs. We will also be building a wheel house over the cockpit and removing the mast as our intention is to make her an solar powered electric trawler.

Believe me, we could still use some help with our Tesla's Revenge Indiegogo project. So it would be greatly appreciated if you helped us out.
