We listened to rain last night for the first time on the boat. No leaks (onto us, at least). I woke up about 2:00 am and saw the full moon through the hatch, unencumbered by clouds. Could not see where the eclipse had taken it's bite yet. Next time I woke the clouds were back. Oh, well.
I spent the day shoehorning the new shower sump pump into it's new home. While this sounds straightforward enough, I was actually working through a small drawer opening behind the head (toilet on a boat). I assembled the pump and it's fittings and then partially disassembled it to get it through the opening, reassembling it with one hand and mostly by feel. Three or four trips to the hardware store. (Have I mentioned there is not even a caution light in this town? I love it, but need to adopt a different attitude about goods and services. Almost ran out of gas on Sunday because the only place to buy gas closed at 5:00.) All the sump pump needs now is electricity, I am searching on the internet for the correct breaker as the one that used to reside in the electrical panel has been removed. Reasons unknown.
Coffee and muffins for breakfast, sandwiches and chips for lunch. I think my foodie wife is in shock. She went to the store for supplies today between showers and came back with cookies (as well as chops and potatoes).
As I write this I am listening to the comfortable sound of the just above idle diesel as we refreeze the holding plate in the refrigerator, and we expect rain all night long.
Life is good.
