A sailing friend suggested that I not keep a list of what work I need to do to my boat, but instead keep a list of everything that I have done. That way, everything on the list is always crossed off, and I can feel better about getting everything done. So, I spent a few minutes and wrote it all down, at least what I can remember, having done in approximately a year. (Well, a year and 3 months) I must say, it is an impressive list, and does make me feel better.

Since I have owned Eliana about 455 days, that is one accomplishment/repair every ten days, which I think is a pretty good pace. Of course, another way of looking at that, is buying some overpriced widget every 10 days :/
