They seemed to be fine with the downpouring rain. I was not. I could feel the rainwater creeping in through the seams of my yellow slicker. After about ten minutes, they were still running and playing and I was starting to shiver. OK kids, time to go back to the boat. They ignored me and kept playing. OK, time to go back to the boat NOW! More ignoring. I
Pam has much more fashion sense than I do.
In other developments, yesterday Drift Away left the dock for only the second time. We moved from Stamford to Norwalk to have the generators looked at. We should be here for a week, I'd guess.
This was also only the third time I've docked this boat. The other two times were easy, once to a big gas dock for fuel and the second to our winter home, also a big gas dock. This docking was much more difficult. I had to get this 46' boat past a 70' shiny yacht, make a 90 degree left turn without hitting it, and then a 90 degree right hand turn into a very narrow slip. I took my time and used the engines to turn the boat, putting one in forward and the other in reverse to slowly turn into the slip. I'm very proud to say that the docking went perfectly and I didn't hit the shiny yacht nor the dock. Not bad for a sailor.
