Well, the adventure is officially over, Marianne finally got hauled out and put away

Well, the adventure is officially over, Marianne finally got hauled out and put away… she’s 58 years old and had 18 months of continuous use (probably around 8,000 miles total), 20 states, 5,418 miles around the Eastern US doing the Great Loop, hundreds of trips up and down the Chicago Rivers, she never missed a beat … I keep saying she’d been waiting all her life for that experience! But it’s time to let her have a break and get some well-deserved rest and maintenance!  All systems shut down. No immediate surprises below the water line. As was pretty much expected.  Spring will be more impressive. She will be show quality and ready for more adventures.   #MissMarianne

Ok, a bittersweet end to a long long run. What a journey it’s been. Now for another chapter. Tons of bright work will be done among other things this winter. The posts will continue but won’t include cruising. A well deserved break is in order. #MissMarianne

The office view from last night and one from this morning. The boat still maintains a warm atmosphere even on the cusp of winter.

New topic. I just finished wiring in one of my many bilge pumps into our Siren Marine vessel monitoring system. Some neat stuff. Ill share some screen shots. It has a cell system and gps intigrated. Screen shot on maps is our entire cruise last night. And all this is sent to your phone. Possibilities are almost infinite. Great for monitoring, securify and much more. I actually installed the basic system when I installed the zipwakes if anyone caught that in my video. #MissMarianne

We have done many upgrades to the boat but still using the original Princess range. Everything on it works. We had to add a ground wire last year when we upgraded the a/c panels. Now for some tv. And goes to show, I do cook once in a while. #MissMarianne
