My New Sailing Neighbor

Yep. We got a new address. We "thought" we were moving into a nice establishment. Certainly a lot of friends there and well known sailors. But weren't we surprised!!

We were up all night with our up-stair neighbors slurring and singing, "Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Rum". Pictures of Johnny Depp are pasted all over their windows dressed up in his Disney garb - picture facing out, not in. Kinda freaky. Then the next morning, who should come down the steps but two people dressed up as pirates, bottle of rum in hand (about empty at 1000 am, I might add), then pointed a sword at me and said, "Aye, Matey! Know thy the location of the scoundrel Captain Flint? Speak quick or get the Black Spot!" I quickly shook my head and ran back inside. Been to scared to leave since then.

I didn't recognize the two at first... then I came to realize who it was: our very own WingnWing. Yes, we are neighbors now in Green Cove, Florida. I tried calling the manager of the place, but they said, "we gave up on them a long time ago. But whatever you do, don't tell them you have the map!"

Just a warning to all who move to Green Cove: BEWARE! Don't expect a nice, peaceful sailing community. Because in that part of Florida, there really are dragons.

Other than that, I would recommend the place to everyone who cruises. SBI has great people working there and very friendly. It has certainly made our lives easier.

You'll thank whatever deity you find appropriate the first time they spit the dragon on their cutlass.
I could think of lots of worse neighbors to have. At least you know where to find rum, company, and lots of lace.

Ha....

We have had those exact same pirates board our boat here before. They are quite a motley crew. Especially the guy with the patch.

Just give them dark and stormies, or some rum and some good beer and they loosen right up.

Ill bet your kids loved their dress.

Re: My New Sailing Neighbor

Sounds like a great place to be, but then again I prefer roller coasters to merry go rounds.

Re: My New Sailing Neighbor

Tell them I've got the map, and I got it from Captain Jack, who sold it to me for $1 while I was in Marathon City Marina. If they want it, they'll have to come to the Sailnet Rendezvous this Saturday. I love them both - they're lots of fun to be with, and they liked my homemade Kahlua.

Cheers,

Gary

CD already has plenty of lace-y things.

Re: My New Sailing Neighbor

Wow we just eyed those scallywags here not more then a few moons ago it seems, they must have had great winds or a sailing brig hot on their wake.
