Rain, rain, go away......

I have been confined to barracks because of solid, steady rain so not much to report. I have been able to work on closing up the 3 holes in my hull with West system's epoxy and have nearly finished them.
Then I took on the dreaded task of cleaning up mold and mildew and also chasing down leaks. This is a galley cupboard before...
And this is it after a dose of Clorox bleach.
All ready for painting. Also I plan on leaving a couple of these DampRid buckets when I put the boat back in storage.
Not sure if they will be effective, but I need all the help I can get. Stopping the leaks is more important and one advantage with all the rain is that I have found 2 leaky areas. One is under the port genoa track and the other is under my newly installed bowsprit. Both of these are major tasks to accomplish so in the meantime I have placed heavy duty Husky plastic bags over them.
One last item is to prove that even though I am roughing it living on a boat, I am eating well. Here is my delicious dinner.......mushrooms, asparagus and brussel sprouts. Mmmmmm!
