The Wish List

A lot of folks keep asking me what's left on the "to-do" list. Basically, there are just a few to-dos that need to happen prior to the trip down to Florida and I had recently mentioned most of them in a previous post. But of course, there are a ton of "love to haves" and that falls into a completely different category...the Wish List.

Now, the Wish List is a whole other animal and I thought I would run down a few items I had jotted down the other night. This exercise, I admit, is a bit depressing as the cost of all these wonderful wishes would certainly make most folks cringe. But it was good to see where my head was and if nothing else, I can prioritize a bit and maybe get through a few of them a little at a time. So in no particular order, here is the official "Wish List" for the sailing vessel Skylark...

Mast Head Wind Vane
Mast Head Main Halyard Pulley
Main Halyard (switching from cable to rope)
Dodger (Have the skeleton need the canvas)
Bimini (Have the canvas, need the skeleton)
Solar Panels and Regulator
Davits (Arch set-up to secure solar panels)
Inflatable Dingy
Outboard for Dingy
Port Light Replacements
House Battery Bank (4 deep cells)
Rebuilt Atomic 4 or replace
Fuel Tank
V-birth Mattress
Quarter Birth Mattress
Refrigeration Rebuild
Hot Water Heater
Pressurized Fresh Water System
Second Bilge Pump
Standing Rigging
Air Conditioner/Reverse Heat Pump
LED Light Fixtures
Rail Mounted BBQ Grill
Deck Gelcoat and Non-Skid Painting
Shower Sump

So there you have it. If you know anyone who is looking to give away money for no particular reason, please let me know. In the mean time, I will continue with my plans to win the lottery.
