The relative humidity at Marathon seems to be climbing daily, and last night it was really high. I have been increasingly worried about keeping my music gear in a climate controlled environment, plus getting it off the boat to take to the various venues. Conseqently, I decided to move the boat from the mooring ball to the city marina this afternoon - which was a smart move. Within three hours the boat's cabin dried out completely with the assistance of the air conditioner. Should make sleeping a lot easier as well.
I'm still in the process of checking out the competition for music jobs, which is a fun experience in itself. It's kinda' neat to hit the Tiki Bars one at a time and watch the entertainers, most of which are fair to mediocre at best. Somewhat like a "Have Guitar - Will Travel" kind of deal.
I'll likely stay here until late January or early February, then head south to Key West for a while, maybe meet up with Captain Aaron and his dad. Need a long day or two to get there, and of course, some good winds/weather. Talked with the local sherif's deputy this evening and he said February here can be pretty nasty, cold and windy. You just never know.
