Back at it!

Now that we don’t have to focus on getting the house ready to sell, we can turn our attention back to Pegu Club.  With splash planned for the end of next month, it’s not a moment too soon!

This past weekend was bitterly cold with highs in the 20’s and low 30’s – not good boat work weather.  However, we did want to check on Pegu Club and take stock of what we need to do over the next six weeks, so we bundled up and drove down to Shenny.

All looked well with Pegu Club.  A Softsoap container in the head had cracked from the below-freezing temperatures over the winter (that’s going to be one clean countertop), and we saw that we had narrowly avoided a minor flood from a 2 gallon jug of water.  It had frozen solid, and with no real room to expand the side was bulging and cracked.  Jeff said it’s a good thing it hadn’t thawed, because 2 gallons of water would have poured all over the floor.  Lesson learned.

Spring will be here some day – I think.

Winter started out pretty well.  We had virtually no snow and while it was cold, it wasn’t too extreme.  Then late January came around and it all went to hell.  We’ve had three storms in less than three weeks, and while we’re not as bad off as Boston, it’s bad enough as far as I’m concerned.  Day after day of below-freezing temperatures, and no real end in sight.  March 1st is always spring in my mind, and it can’t come soon enough.  Hopefully we’ll have Pegu Club in the water during the last week of April and this will all be a not-so-distant memory.

In the meantime, we’ve been learning how to use our GoPro and we’re hoping to have some fun videos of our adventures on the Pegu Club this summer.  I decided to experiment with it this morning and make our first video.  There were a few things I would have done differently had I known, but this is a good first try.  Enjoy!
