    Oh my!!! Thanks Bob for finding this special Christmas card!!! The Hinckley on the card has so much details, WOW!

    So I supposed to get new red & green sails now. Santa’s foulie must worked pretty well too.

    Happy holidays everyone.

    LOL!!!

    Maybe Santa will let you keep the sails. You'll be stylin' next Summer in Hanalei Bay!

    Last year we left you hanging with Surprise!'s electrical re-do. Update: Rob finished it in time for the New Year's raft-up at Clipper Cove.

    And a fine job he did! We got rid of the house bank:

    And replaced it with a wine rack:

    Batteries? We don't need no steenkin' batteries!

    Oh, there was the listing problem. Three carbon foam Fireflies in the hanging locker leveled her out.
    With their 80%+ possible depth of discharge, the Fireflies effectively double the house bank's capacity.
    No worries - a rubber mat and a (to be completed) false floor cover them.

    A close-up of the new charger, which replaced an old, heavy Freedom 10 in the back of the boat:

    Rob says he really enjoyed seeing his vision for the components and wiring layout become reality.

    Seriously, Bob? Pinot noir in the bilge?

    It's okay - that's not the bilge.

    I just need to make sure the charger isn't working too hard or I'll get a call from Surprise!'s sommelier.
