Wow. It has been raining cats and dogs, chickens, horses and occasional bears for three days straight here. Our trip up to the new marina was wet, coming home was wet. We’ve pretty much been confined to the boat for two of the days. It was so cold here yesterday and the night before that I had to break out the HeaterBuddy.
It’s a cool little device (ok, a WARM little device) that uses the little propane tanks (up quickly, about 2 hours) to heat up the cabin of the boat.
I pretty much killed 1.5 tanks keeping us from shivering. The sun is finally peeking out abit from some clouds, and the radar was showing that we should be getting some clearing, though weather reports are still saying a 60% chance of rain.
We’ve really taken two days off from doing much of anything. I’ve not really been motivated to do much in the wet, chill air. But, with the sun coming out, I think we’ll go get something other than my horrible cooking (we had rice with canned chicken meat in it last night… which I spiced up pretty well with Frank’s Red Hot sauce). I’m thinking maybe fish or oysters or something about now.
What we haven’t done is the laundry. We have a bag full. I’m not worried, I think I still have some underwear I can turn inside out…. 🙂
Today I DID do measurements in the aft head for a new composting toilet system. We’ve been looking at C-Head, Nature’s Head and Airhead. I’m partial to the Nature’s Head. Or was. Until I drew a picture of the bath room, the foot print of the shelf the toilet sits upon, and realized that all of them are too tall. Except the C-Head. I’m not happy with it’s design. On the other hand, I haven’t found anyone who has said bad things about it either.
Looks like we’re going to go with the C-Head because of the height. The height on the other two is 20-22″, and the cabinet doors are at 17″ to the cabinet frame, and 18.75″ to the bottom of the door. The C-Head, with the cut out bottom will be 15″. And it will sit on the shelf which serves as a step down.
More on that later… when we move, I get the stuff ordered and start installing it. Be prepared for a blog post with more than a sufficient amount of “sailor talk” when that happens. Might want to cover the kiddies eyes for that one. lol
