 The crew at Blue Springs are always great to work with and were very helpful in getting Brisa squared away on arrival!!


These go back to when Brisa first arrived at Blue Springs Marina. I just discovered them on my computer....this hauler was out of Jacksonville, Florida and did a good job getting her here without any problems.
It was nice to get out and do some sailing on Watts Bar Lake in TN.

Hot water tank....while winterizing...needs to be replaced!!

Sad but at least won't worry this winter when the temperature drops to freezing for a couple of days. First time I have had to winterize a boat. When up North in MA never had an engine.....just built a good covering to protect from snow and rain...ice. When in Florida no need and when we were living aboard here in TN ran the heat etc. Will have plenty of projects to keep us busy until Spring....replacing some hoses....fittings.....older ones replaced with bronze etc. etc. list goes on.....
Elizabeth. Daniel and I got out a couple more times and had nice weather and light to moderate winds.....just right for us to continue to get more and more comfortable with Brisa. Elizabeth really has the worst of it....trying to get used to the boat and helping out while at the same time constantly keeping an I....and then some on Daniel. In the mean time Daniel at 3.5 loves it and continues to explore and take it all in. He will go back to swim lessons next summer...plus more time in the lake.....once Elizabeth knows he can swim I'm sure it will help her relax a little more on board.

This could be the one......
