Progress on Love is All

Work is progressing on "Love is All," the boat I am helping to restore. We've added a beadboard "ceiling" to the V-berth, two new clothes lockers for the master suite with settees for changing, lounging, etc.
The lockers were a pain to fit, but now they're in and they look great. (If I do say so myself.)

Take a look at Tim's latest post to see the most recent pictures.

S/V Love is All

I never thought we'd get this far, but it all seems to be coming together.

Exciting news!

We now have our own online store!
For the last few years you have been watching us sail around the country and read how we have upgraded the boat, etc. Now you have the chance to buy the products that we use directly from our own store, by way of Amazon. We get to pick and choose what products we add to the store, so you can be assured that everything that shows up in our store is a product we have used either on Walkure or on Queequeg. Before you shop for anything anywhere, check out our store. You will know that we have tried the product and that it performs as advertised.
The first products we have added are the Xantrex LinkLite Battery monitor. We love this product so much on Walkure that we bought one to install on Queequeg. If you live or cruise on a boat you know how important it is to keep track of your batteries. LinkLite is the way to do it.
Also added is the full line of Morninstar Solar Controllers. We've used other controllers on Walkure, and none perform like the Morningstar.

Both our blogs will have a link to our new store. I've included it in this post as well.

Our Amazon Store

So why should you buy from us? Well first of all, Amazon has great prices. You will have search high and wide to find better pricing. And the best part is - you help us keep cruising and bringing you the stories of our adventures!

We will be adding more products in the weeks and months to come, so stop back often!

I'm sitting here in New Port Richey, waiting for a guy to show up to buy our old dinghy and contemplating life on our new boat. It occurs to me that writing about the new boat on a blog named after the current boat isn't really appropriate. So, I've decided to start a new blog about the new boat.
This blog will continue to serve as our main channel of information for as long as we are on Walküre, but any information regarding Queequeg, her repairs and upgrades, and our travels on that boat will be posted to the new blog at:

The Queequeg Blog

It just seems to be in keeping with the old sailor's superstition about not having anything named after one boat on a different boat.

Gotta keep the sea gods happy, after all.
