We arrive in Kent, Washington about 3:30 PM and go to the factory. We meet with Andrew and Jeff. Horrors, our boat is not there. Andrew tells us that it is in the water waiting for us at the Des Moines marina nearby. It was not hard to find.
We throw a few necessities into the boat and settle down for happy hour. After 7 days and 3000 miles, we are in our new home for the summer.
I do believe Jake enjoyed the ride. He is finding his place to sleep. He does not care where is, just that he is. An attitude from which many of us could learn.
We get back from our shakedown cruise, and Andrew calls for Kenny to bring us a part to replace on the Air conditioner/Heat Pump. After replacing it , we enjoy a beer together.
Our first full day on the boat is good one. New friends, great service from the plant, and all this sunshine we brought from Texas.
Walldog, Willie and Jake.
