Sorry it's been a while....

but unfortunately, not much has been happening....other than of course, we have been living in a 25 foot Airstream trailer at Whitey's Campground. Whitey's is a great place on the water to have a beer and listen to some live music, but not a great place to live! Fortunately, though, and we do feel VERY fortunate, Connie and Steve have invited us into their beautiful home. We made it 6 weeks at the campground and it was definitely an experience.

Anyway, the boat is moving along. Mirage is doing their best, but it is just frustrating for us, having to bounce around in our living arrangements. Their focus early in the year was to get the first N47 launched in time for the Miami Boat Show. They made it and the boat, Gale Force, is beautiful. Tom and Gail are currently cruising in the Keys and having a fabulous time. They love their new boat and tell us it is worth the wait. So, we will continue to wait...and wait....and wait...and wait!!! If anyone tells you it is less than 2 years to build a boat from contract signing until delivery, don't believe them. The new delivery date is mid April. Keep your fingers crossed!
Anyway, the pictures show the v-groove (the white walls) being finished, more rigging (wiring, which takes the longest), the yellow color of the canvas and cushions on the flybridge and Alina and Steve on their back porch!
