The sails are on, the new engine is purring like a tiger, the crew is raring to go, the inspections and certifications are done for another year.
What ain't we got? (with apologies to South Pacific); we ain't got names. That is, while we are in a good and perfectly satisfactory place on bookings, your names may not be among those signed up for a cruise, be it in the warmth of summer or the crispness of fall. Don't miss this season!

The masts were scraped and given two coats of linseed oil and turpentine in April.
Now that the sails are bent on a generous coat of grease with some more linseed oil.
