We are trying so very hard not to bore you with more videos of us just fairing and sanding, although that is basically what is taking up 90% of our time right now. And although more primer should be going on very very soon, we didn't think you'd be interested in our groundhog day of perfecting the guest hull for that to happen.

So, in this week's episode, we focus on a smaller project of the holding tank coming in for our master head. We have been debating for so long what we wanted to do on this side, since spaces are limited and odd shaped. Eventually, we ordered a prefabricated one.

And it actually fits into one of our open spaces pretty well. But, after now dealing with the extra weight that comes with it and the extra projects to secure it in place, would we have been better off just building one like we did on the port side?

For a little added fun, we do let ourselves out an hour early one night to go hang with our friends of Ryan and Sophie sailing, now they are back in Annapolis. And while together, we each get to toast something special the day holds for us.

We hope you enjoy!!
