I had been contemplating when I would make the move to my own domain. Yesterday I noticed that my web provider, Weebly.com, was having a Cyber Monday sale.
And so, FV-Escape-Hatch.com is born.
While it is not yet fully complete at this time, it is at a point where I am comfortable with what is there. I will continue to edit, refine, and add things as I go.
As I am delving into the detail of the building of FV-Escape-Hatch.Com the final picture is coming into focus. Lots of updates on the website as well. But no work will be done today. Because today is Thanksgiving. My family gets together and we have a grand ole time.
I have many things to be thankful for. Chief among them is my wife, Amanda. Things have been tough for me lately with increased pain. But she has been there for me and I'm super thankful to have her in my life.
I wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving!
Things have been moving along with the project. I believe I may have "finalized" my design, though I've been told that my build will evolve a little as I progress and I've accepted that. The "final" design will at least give me a road map. I've also been doing a lot of work on the web site to break up the wall of text hitting you. But this post isn't really about my project.
I wanted to just give a quick thank you to the Warrior Sailing Program by helping to spread awareness of their program and how they helped me. And now it's made easier because I can just link to a segment from NBC Nightly News where they highlighted this wonderful program!
Please check out this segment
Then please head on over to Warrior Sailing Program and donate!
It was another crazy week for me. I was unable to do much work on the site but a lot was still accomplished.
The best thing that happened was my wife and I going to a Warrior Sailing Program day sail event in San Diego.
The owners of S/V Happy Together and Warrior Sailing Program sponsors, Randy and Lennie, were happy to invite some graduates and their families out for a day on their GORGEOUS 48' Leopard Cat Sailboat. We sailed out of Southwestern Yacht Club who are also sponsors of the program and graciously host dinners for San Diego Basic Sailing Camps.
We got to help handle lines and man the helm or just sit and relax and enjoy the cruise. I of course chose to work. It was certainly a great experience and I'm thrilled I got to share it with my wife!
It was a fun day and I look forward to more!
Progress is still being made on the Boat Build Project. More property improvement plans have been made and I'm about ready to approach the city to see what permits and codes I need to keep in mind as I move forward. The 3D design is coming together and my changes to the original design are panning out so far.
More to come soon!
