On the Road Again

Well, the good news is that the refit is nearly complete!!! The last few projects include the install of a redundant watermaker that will run off the solar panels all day from about 9am to 4pm, and a beer/ wine fridge drawer. All projects are schedule to be finished up by the end of the month- and then we are no longer needed.

Yep that's the bad news. Six months of breaking our backs to get this boat in shape to cruise south for the adventure of a lifetime and just when the final projects are coming to a close the owner tells us that he no longer needs a crew. He can take it from here. Are we the world's biggest suckers, or what??

Thank you Diadem for all that you have taught us. We were able to gain valuable skills and perspective through our employment and termination.

What's next for us? We've been offered may interviews already but will probably opt to take some time off. Breath, travel, or be with friends and family.

Have no fear-- we will still be blogging through our time off. There are loads of pictures yet to be posted, and who knows... maybe we will be offered a deal we can not pass up and find ourselves back on a boat in the fall. That's life after all and we'll keep you posted!


  1. Crappy news! Hopefully you find a boat by 2011... Houston is rumbling for another trip :)

  2. That sucks... let me know if you'll be visiting Boston in your time off!
