BEAUFORT, North Carolina: August - October 2014

For 2 months in the hot, sticky, humid summer of 2014, Tim worked 7 days a week, 10 hour days, fixing and replacing parts on our boat. Once most of the list was accomplished (you know the list is never completed), we left Beaufort, North Carolina on our journey south along the US coast, then the Bahamas and the Eastern Caribbean.

Some of the major things that were done to Alpenglow:  Replace the port & starboard chain plates, install a new arch, replace all the fresh water hoses, replace the holding tank hose, replace some of the electrical wires, add a new solar panel, install new companion way doors, the list goes on and on.

Most of the cabinets on the Port and Starboard side
needed to be removed to replace the chain plates
