Spirit’s Finishing Touches

The interior details are almost finished – from sinks, faucets and appliances to the varnishing of the cherry joinery. She’s lookin’ good! (See photos below)

In a week or so Spirit will be moved outside for electrical and plumbing testing. Then, at the end of February, she’ll be transported south to Fox’s Marina in Ipswich and lowered into the water. Once wet it’s several more weeks of rigging, testing and sea trials before we become official new owners in mid-May.

This has been one incredible process full of anticipation and education.
