Figured it out

Well, as usual, we perfected our window installation technique on the eighth of eight windows. However, all windows went in smoothly without any oops. Nice. Mark at Mark Plastics provided the windows from OEM patterns for the 1980 Gulf 29. He would not make forward opening windows, to his credit. They're great for getting a breeze while lying at anchor, but not so much for seeing out of or keeping water out reliably. Mark gave excellent installation advice and made himself available for questions if we had any. Being a couple of ornery, independent little cusses, we didn't.

Dry Fit

The new windows fit properly. Now what?

So, Cirque du Soliel presented Corteo under their big top in Bicentennial Park on Biscayne Blvd. Chica-san and I were enticed to attend. Favorites were hula-girl, the flying rings gymnasts, and the all-at-once parallel bars troupe. Muy cool, kimo.

So this frickin genius phone fails to include my tediously hunted and pecked notes if I type them after the photo... and it breaks my lines arbitrarily.

Now the windows are so shiny I'm going to have to buy a new boat to go with them. Think chica will go for it?
