AfterMath! We picked that name over three years ago now. Way before we were sure this was a reality. Way before we even knew what she would look like. Way before we were within a couple of days of actually living on a boat. But now she wears the name we picked for her. We met Frank Flynn at Spicer’s Marina in Noank and he said he could put her name on – in 22 karat gold leaf! We think he did an amazing job! It’s big and bold and beautiful. Even our hailing port of Bradenton is in gold leaf. We are thrilled to say the least!
As for updates, while we expected to be put in the water last Thursday, there were a few boats in front of us that weren’t quite ready, so our launch date was delayed until tomorrow. Then Mother Nature came along and brought rain, cold, and wind today, so those boats in front of us were delayed another day. Now the launch date is Wednesday. In the time we had available, we unpacked the trailer that we dragged behind us from Florida and kept for 29 days. I can’t say I was sad to see the trailer go! It was wonderful to get our things onboard, although bringing everything in was a lot of work as the boat is quite high off of the road. We now have all of our belongings stowed away neatly and AfterMath is starting to feel like home. As soon as it is in the water, we will take some living area pictures and share them here. I have had a lot of requests for interior views. They are coming soon!
