2003 Year End Summary of JoLi's Progress

We had accomplished an incredible amount in 2003 on JoLi' and balanced it well with visits from friends and family.

Here's a short list:

• Replaced 8 salon windows with new ones.

• Wheelhouse built out with steering station, 4 drawers, banquette incorporating latch door for guest cabin entrance.

• Oak steps installed and varnished in to the main cabin

• Skylight built and varnished

• Deck dining table and chairs purchased

• White wood ceiling installed throughout

• Radiators for central heating fixed to walls and central heating operational

Our goal for 2004 was to finish the interior windows and interior panelling. This was something that we would not be able to

do on our own. A professional would have to build frames that set in around all of the 16 windows in the interior. Curtains for all

the windows needed to be made. A settee needed to be located for the salon.

The galley was still a temporary set-up but it worked fine and would have to take lower priority financially.
