"O'er the glad waters of the dark blue sea,
Our thoughts as boundless, and our souls as free,
Far as the breeze can bear, the billows foam,
Survey our empire, and behold our home!" —Lord Byron, Corsair

Wax On....Wax Off....
While the crew of Miss Maggie (now Tiki Trek) was undertaking all sorts of significant and challenging work such as reattaching chainplates, replacing head hoses, and power washing the bilge, I was at a loss to find anything really "manly" to do. A few small upgrades this weekend.
A new stereo system to replace the mid-90's cassette deck.
Replaced all 12v lightbulbs with LEDs
For exercise and in order not to look too lazy, I decided to wax the hull. So now, she's not only clean on the inside but shiny on the outside.
