Since our last snow storm we got a bit done on Gypsy. We got the electric bilge pump wired. We finally have a working electric bilge pump. Yea! We had to build a bracket for the pump and also for the float switch. The float switch was designed to screw into the bottom of the boat, which is not a good idea if you want to keep the water out. In the picture you can see the pickup for the manual pump and the float switch and the electric pump.
We also got some more LED lights and we put two in the vee berth. We can now see in the vee berth. While we were doing all of this another blizzard was predicted for Portland. We decided that it was time to head south, so we got an a plane and flew to Seattle and on to St. Thomas. Bill’s sister has a place there and it is a great way to get some warm beach time in. We sent enough warm thoughts back to Portland that the blizzard was averted. Portland only had to cope with lots of rain.
