Cleaning Kya the Dinghy
At this point I think I'm posting jobs just so I can one day look back and find out what I did all summer. Next on the list: clean our dinghy Kya (Bob Marley song/album reference) (the wife grew up in Jamaica). I would love to get a new sailing dinghy in the future but for now she's all we've got. She wasn't that dirty, just a little boat soap and some scrubbing is all it took.
Above: Kya has these handy metal thingys installed so that they hook on the back of Kingsley (the boat). Although it stores her nice under sail I don't really like it because it blocks access to the back of the boat (future lake swimming because Kingsley's back opens down to the waterline).
Below: A handy way to hold Kya on our dock posts (which we had to rent extra from the marina) while I grabbed the rope to tie her up for real.
It was pretty cool to stop by the annual Shilshole Marina Open House this year because this is where we first started looking at boats last year. I don't even think we had any idea that we'd be living aboard just a year later, but one thing leads to another I guess. Back then, I was really into a Catalina 42 one of the brokers had for sale. Now, we really liked the boat pictured (but not for sale) below...bamboo mast anyone?
