I bet y’all are thinking those two must be enjoying that warm weather and kicking back on the water with a couple of killer martinis…Ya well we’re not. These were consumed what feels like a million years ago when we used swim in the morning and take pictures of turtle signs on the beach. That’s all over now finito (for now).
Now we are in the upgrade phase of the boat, and I’m talking 12 hrs a day. Here in Fort Lauderdale the temperature has been THROUGH THE ROOF.
Blinking makes you sweat, seriously.
This makes you thirsty and it was with this revelation that we realized just how much water you consume.
This boat holds 200 gallons of fresh water but after showers and cleaning you go through it pretty quickly. So we thought this was not something we wanted to compromise on hence the water maker project.
It’s a pretty big unit and it’s said to be “Plug N Play” if your a master mechanic with an engineering background and a film has been written about your life.
We’re not but Steve’s damn close and can pretty much do ANYTHING, so we ordered it up.
This is the crew cabin from an overhead view – this is where the water maker’s going.
And it’s lights out.
Up through your hatch you come.
In goes the “plug N play” water maker.
The next continuous 48 hrs consisted of a gruelling set up in a hole for Steve. This made Orange is the New Black look like a Sandals Vacation!
To me this was the work of an extremely focused man. Luckily there was a fan and the shower in there for him to cool off while he worked but jeez that was a hot one!
And there is no good time – it’s always hot!
Hey honey what’s it look like out there?
Oh it’s over 100 degrees like yesterday and the day before.
On a side note, we have seen people roaming the streets with LONG sleeve shirts and Jeans and even SWEATERS! Ok I know that Starbucks has brought back it’s pumpkin spice latte but seriously people it’s over 100 degrees!!
Perfect spot really. This here is just the set up – now there’s the rewiring and electrical dog and pony show.
If I could wear a hat in this weather it would be off to Steve for putting this together. Not only did he sweat for 2 solid days he had the foresight to run speaker wire at the same time while doing the electrical.
