I’ve waited a long time to write this post.  My beautiful boat has been under refit since purchase almost a year ago.  And now is the time that I can finally say, “I’m done”.

  1. Your refit is fantastic. You have a real beautiful eye for color and space. Wish you and the 5 a happy summer full of cruises.

  2. I think your boat is very fortunate to have found a motivated, capable Captain with sufficient resources and good taste to restore and improve what was obviously a great vessel in need of some love. Good work.

  3. Wow! It’s gorgeous! Congratulations on it turning out so well, but I know you’ve put a lot of hard work and sweat into it.

    You’ve been a real inspiration to me. I bought my own boat in Florida (a Hatteras 48 LRC), keeping your courage and can-do attitude in mind, but I haven’t gotten it home to the Chesapeake area yet. Hopefully, it will be home by the end of June.

    I’m looking forward to hearing more about your and your family’s adventures this spring/summer/fall.

    Standing by, watching your success, and cheering you on,

    Greg

    • Thanks Greg!!! Hatteras is awesome!!! These really are great boats. You made a very good choice. I wish you lots of luck with your new purchase. Remember, if you think you can, than you can. Keep me posted on your journey.

  4. Wow!, Very well done! You and the family should be very proud of what you have accomplished through perseverance and hard work. Any plans in the near future to stretch her sea legs?

  5. Wow, excellent! Congratulations. You and your children must be so proud. What a wonderful life lesson for them to see you do this. Just in time for a summer cruise. Where to this year?

    • Thanks Jonathan!!! Yes! I love teaching my kids about renovation. This one was a bit different, they usually watch drywall going up, but I love showing them that anything can be done 🙂

  6. Looks terrific! Are you planning to cruise this summer with the gang?

  7. Wow, what a great job you did GG. Now, I hope you figure out a way to keep and enjoy her. Best of luck on whatever road life leads you on….

  8. Someone mentioned “surplus electricity” in another part of this blog. I THINK what they meant is that if you are running the generator set while underway, there is probably capacity not being used. (so to speak) Marine generators last longer and do better if they are run at moderate load, not too lightly or too heavily loaded. Usually there is a range in the middle which will provide adequate loading so that the generator engine doesn’t carbon up, but also avoiding overloading it so that the breakers trip. At least that is what I think they meant.

  9. VERY nice!

    But I pay more attention to the engine room and mechanicals, so what’d you do about all that, and show some pics!

    🙂

  10. Wonderful Job! It looks like a luxury liner! 🙂 Great work restoring and improving. Are you accepting guests yet? (big smile)
    I hope you and your family enjoy living aboard such a beautiful vessel. God Bless you all and enjoy your new life.
