Still in Sarasota
In case some of you were wondering if we sailed off the edge of the earth -- nope! The FantaSea is still here at Sara Bay Marina, where Coy is working very diligently on installing more batteries. This involves designing and building wracks above the two existing batteries. Not as easy as it sounds when you're working with limited space in the engine room.
I'm still working at my job in Pensacola. I just got back from a two week rotation yesterday. I'll be off until around May 10 and then back to Pensacola for two weeks. My company is letting me stay in a nice condominium on Pensacola Beach with a geat view of the Gulf. Not too shabby, eh?
The next step for the boat will be to install some solar panels. We plan to put them above the bimini. Once that's completed. we're off!
Meanwhile, Coy has enjoyed this marina and has made some friends. We're enjoying the Sarasota area. We've been to the farmer's market and enjoyed some of the street music.
