Went down to the boat - Wanted to check out my dads handy work - he replaced the old copper wire connections for these ones.
Making it much easier to change the gas bottles without needing a wrench and being able to pull them out to the storage box !! I am one very happy sailor !! I’m so lucky to have a dad who is not only able to help me with stuff on the boat but willing to as well haha #bestdad#boatlife

It is now time to properly thank the guys who've joined me so far. Here is the first crew member profile 🙌

But we’ve got over 6 years together so not much has changed aside from introducing each other as husband and wife (which I still love). We still enjoy an adventure and now we find ourselves planning for the future a little more... stay in NY or try another city? Expand our family? Travel more? Buy a houseboat (lol)? Decisions decisions, but one thing that won’t change is our love for pizza! 🍕😄 📸📸 @jasonsmelser - such a talented photographer! Can’t wait to share the rest 😄
