11 Months of Projects

When we bought our Nordhavn, we probably could have sailed off to Mexico right away. It was in excellent cruising condition. However, we wanted to get to know her and update a few more things. We started out with a short list of critical items, but each time we crossed something off, we seemed to add one more item. Our boat neighbor would suggest one more 'nice to have' item, Boat Galley Blog would feature a 'Really Great Thing' (we have a love-hate relationship with Boat Galley), we'd see something on someone else's boat and decide we needed it or that darn Amazon would suggest a 'must-have' item.

We need to start cruising just so that we don't have such easy access to Amazon and Fisheries stores! Here is a list of the updates, both giant and small, that we've done to Noeta. We're really ready to go now!
