Re: New Crew

Well the guys are now the stars ( lings) of the marina. They have found out how to catch bugs but come around a couple or three times a day for a take out. I had one visit while I was up on a mast. I know I should have taken food with me up there, but didn't, so ended up with a chirping starling on my shoulder while doing the rigging work. I towed one boat out of the lift well with engine problems and the other guy turned up, sat on the head of the skipper of the sailboat till it was in its slip and then flew over to me when I was back on the right boat. They also visited the marina office this morning. I was out to my mooring to get some tools from the boat and when I came back, th guy in the slip next to Lindas boat was doing some brightwork and had a starling on his shoulder, waiting for me to get back.
They shore have the whole place wrapped around their little claws.
