August 11, 2006 Urbanna, VA

We have had an exciting few days on the water and Rick will be updating the blog about that. In the meantime, we have been asked what the boat looks like. It is such a great boat and we are really comfortable.

We spend most of our time on the upper helm when we are under way. To the right of the captain's chair you see a PC display. It is connected to Rick's PC in the lower helm station and runs our navigation software. There is a freezer on the left side, OK port side for you mariners, which holds a ton of food!

Here is Captain Rick at the lower helm station. We don't usually run the boat from here unless the weather is really bad or if we are in Georgia and the black flies are attacking!

This is the salon with the galley in the background. The sofa is a fold-out double bed so plenty of room for guests. The yellow placemats are on top of the cold plate refrigerator which also holds lots of food. The ice maker is below the lamp.

The master stateroom has a full size queen bed. Lots of hanging space and drawers. We were surprised that we could fit all of our 'stuff' into it. The head includes a nice shower. There is also a combo washer/dryer.

The aft deck is where we hang out when we finally get somewhere. This is where we say 'This is what it is all about' as evidenced by the next picture, taken at anchor just off the Jamestown Settlement on the James River in Virginia.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We are on our way to the Potomac River tomorrow.
