Sitting in a small coffee shop before my first day of work. I shook the Captain's hand yesterday and took a tour of the boat. All her spars are down on deck to be varnished, along with the blocks. Two of the crew, Fortek and Shannon were brushing the standing rigging in the shop. I didn't sleep as well as I'd hoped, but coffee and excitement will keep me going; I suspect willpower will handle the rest. Dawn will probably help as well. Even the coffee shop owner asked why I was up. I'm happy with it.
