Outdoor Eating in Style

Even though we've been going to the boat for projects fairly regularly, it has taken us, well Ron (since I was gone), until this past weekend to get the cockpit table installed. We forgot the table, we forgot the hardware to attach it to the pedestal, we ran out of time, we brought the hardware home and forgot it again. I was beginning to think it would never get done.

But last weekend the stars aligned, all needed supplies were present and we now have a new (and gorgeous) cockpit table just waiting to be broken in this coming weekend! And after all the time Ron put into it making it from scratch, he's been anxiously awaiting this time.

Dinner will no longer be a show itself, full of balancing and tactical manuevering, but a nice, relaxing time where our conversation doesn't consist solely of asking eachother where dinner-related items and condiments were randomly placed.

And we finally have drink holders!!! The importance of this should not be overlooked. Now our Tervis', and their contents, can be safely stowed instead of rolling around.
A work of art, no?


Now, let's get this weekend started already!

    1. Thanks Scotty, I think he does pretty nice work too ;) I have no doubt that one day he'll have a massive woodshop of his own, as long as he makes me something every now and then I won't complain!
