Derek was nice enough to send me a picture of the label on the dehumidifier. Given the serial number it is not a recalled unit.
I’ve asked Derek to plug it back in, turn it on and make sure the drain hose is in the sink.
In an email conversation with friend and author, Scott Wilson, Scott asked me if I had scheduled my pull date. Uh, do I need to do so this far in advance? I guess I better.
We’ll pull the boat at Boat Haven in Port Townsend, where Jennifer will have her residence – She just bought a house there that will be her and Hilary’s home, and we’ll VRBO and AirBNB while we’re sailing or somewhere else.
The question eating at us is what to do about our slip on Lake Union? We love the location, the people and the community. The goal was to live aboard there for a year.
For the next year or so, we’ll keep it. Having a pied-à-terre in Seattle is worth the cost and effort to visit and work on the boat. We can anchor off Port Townsend when we need to.
If we move the boat out of Seattle at some point, Port Hadlock looks like the place. But we’ll see.
To get Caro Babbo to Port Townsend will require a reliable engine. This worry hangs over me.
Jennifer and I are working hard on a project in Phoenix that has kept me from writing more and filling in all the blanks in the Alaska trip – I have also not contacted the many people we met along the way as I promised and intended.
We’ll be back in the PNW the 7th of January. Breakfasts on Lake Union to follow!
