Up da Mast!

20 knot winds gusting to 25… can’t think of a better day to go up the Mast!!!! Whooo Hooo!!!
Captain Ron came over to help Robin crank the cranker as Timbo flew up the mast.
Our wind anemometer (Electronic device that shows wind speed and direction) has never worked…
I had a new one from ol’ FatFish that I brought down last August…
After replacing the main halyards I ran out of excuses to delay the job, so UP WE GO!!!
Dinner party on Island Dancer followed with Robin’s famous meat balls and spaghetti!

Our friend Joe is in town… now here’s a story! Back a few years ago, Joe would rollerblade (inline skate) to work everyday…
It was a 6 mile trek each way…
His co-workers starting joking, he should skate across the country (USA) for a vacation….
So… he did… twice
Then, he travelled to Australia and attempted to circle the island… and almost made it…
Travelling only at night due to the extreme heat, he was changing wheels 5-6 times a day.. The chip asphalt roads were pretty hard on the skates….
eventually he ran out of wheels and had to stop.. but an awesome adventure none the less…
Lots of stories, especially back in the USA near Tennessee… Apparently Deliverance movie is not his favourite 🙂

Waiting to hear from the weather man for our departure date… should be in a few days…

Have a GREAT DAY!!
TIMBO!
