Always, A List
That's not the list of things you have to order? my dad said.
Uh, yep, that's it, I answered. Always a lot to do to keep the boat going.
Moaning about how much trouble it is to buy things for your yacht has never been a sure-fire way to inspire sympathy. But I will say that one of my least-favorite boat chores is sourcing parts online. I would much rather dive into the water in my snorkeling gear to unplug a clogged head discharge hose...
However, everything boat-related in New Zealand is about twice the price in the U.S., so this trip back to North America is a prime chance to stock up the barky before our upcoming trip to the tropics. Now I just have to psych myself up for some mindless hours of searching for parts on the laptop...
