Outbound update

It appears our friends aboard Outbound have arrived at Cabo San Lucas. It's been several days at sea and we imagine land is a good sight to see for the crew. Bet tonight will be a big one. Looking forward to an update from the crew.

Meanwhile in Stuart.... We are still waiting on Florida Yacht Interiors to deliver (project due date was May 2) us something to sit on. We feel like we are camping out in our own boat. Florida Yacht Interiors is an upscale yacht interior design firm out of Fort Lauderdale and we were told to expect great service and quality work. Hmmm... more on this story when it finally unfolds.
The pilot house chair, a Stidd, was a project they [FYI] declined on because of the complexity of tearing it down and putting it back together. We gave that job to Capt. Will and a young fellow here in Stuart named Scott Valentine. Will and Scott delivered right on time and it looks great.
Will dismantled the hardware, which was a daunting task, and Scott reupholstered what was once Purple... or burgundy as Mel likes to call it.
Anyway, the end result.

 this was
 once this.

Hopefully that will all be behind us this weekend as we leave for the islands.
