Thanks to many horrible hours working with wood Carl got the range in place. He HATES carpentry with a passion and prefers to weld – lucky we have a steel boat and not a wood one.
The original stove was one straight out of a house, huge, useless and no oven! All the hours learning how to make bread from scratch is not going down the drain. Tomorrow a guy should be coming around to see if he can put in some stainless steel to encase the box it goes in. I think we’re also going to border it with stainless steel to hide the fact the hole was bigger than our Dickinson Marine Mediterranean stove. Can’t wait to cook something – who ever thought I’d be saying that.
Carl is out now with the girls (oh the peace, catching up on our business billing and payroll) looking for propane hose to get this bad boy powered up! Maybe spaghetti bolognaise for dinner tonight!!
But until then I have a mound of paperwork for our not so closed business, need to get Prili on ebay. It’s been raining here for the past few days and our laundry is in a huge festering nest in the forward cabin. But got my hand wringer in the mail yesterday so hopefully the rain holds off and I’ll get a couple of bucket loads washed today. Busy busy bee. People ask “what are you going to do all day on a sailboat?” Ummm hello “FIX IT and survive”
