We are inching closer to the launch of our new boat, Sea Rose, with every day filled with to do lists – the kind that shrink one moment, and grow the next! Our boat is a couple weeks off schedule on it’s delivery and commissioning in Canet-en-Roussillon, but that’s a blessing in disguise, as we try to get all of our ducks in a row before the big splash. It took us over ten years of tweaks here and there to get Thalia to where we needed her for long-distance cruising, and while we are bringing that school-of-hard-knocks experience to bear with the commissioning of Sea Rose, it still feels like cramming many years of boat improvements into one Spring launch.
During this phase of the boat commissioning process, we have been posting new videos of our experience to our YouTube channel, LifeFourPointZero. There are two new ones posted. The first video covers the boat paperwork and licensing process, and the second one covers tips on building a solar system for your boat. We hope you enjoy them, and as always, we look forward to any comments you have!
