Doth my eyes deceive me, or was that a Portugese flag flying on that boat?

Did you trade in Giulietta? And would that be considered trading up or trading down? HEHE!

I got a few miles out then spent a nice day hanging upside down through the cockpit sole (it lifts off) working on the engine..... fun fun fun.

I'm almost glad it worked out that way...I hate going out on holiday weekends. Everyone with something that floats is out on the water. Bathtubs, inner-tubes, jet skis, mega motor idiots on auto-coming right for ya-pilot....love it love it love it.

What happened? Keel fall off? I told you not to use zip-ties to hold it on - no matter how much lighter they are than stainless steel. The extra paint on the bottom (shark face) probably did it. Too bad, too. With that cockpit, you could have really held a nice BBQ.

I spent the better part of the weekend with 100 or so of my (new) close friends on the hard getting the boat ready for the water. The weather has been so bad/cold that most of the boats are still in the yard. There were far more boaters in the yard working on boats than there were boats on the water. Friday we will be out of the yard and into the water!!!!

Good to hear!

Talking with a boat neighbor on Sunday evening, we both said the exact same thing. Launched in mid April and have had less than 30 hours total sailing time this spring. You did not miss much.

Had a nice Memorial Day:

Knocked off work a bit early, and took my 14-year-old daughter and her friend to Eagle Harbor/Winslow, which is on Bainbridge Island, which is about 7 miles west of Seattle.

Had to motor there from Edmonds, but with a 1.5 knot flood tide, we got there in good time, and arrived at 7 PM. I was amazed to find that there was only one other boat on the city dock, and we tied up.

I let the kids have free run on this nice little town, including kayaking in the bay. We stayed in touch by VHF, which was a good way to teach my daughter radio protocol.

We left Saturday evening, against that flood tide now, and got in around 9:00.

Sunday afternoon, we decided to sail to Edmonds, which is where we keep our boat, had a day sail, and barbequed at the dock. A very nice evening.

Marty (blt2ski) was out all weekend.

Didn't run into any drunken people afloat.

On another note and not quite on topic; the fuel docks by us were very busy with the mega boys filling their tanks for the first (and possibly only) time.

We motored over and filled up with 11 something gallons and around $54. I don't remember the exact numbers. The boat in front of us had taken on over 900 gallons! Must have been around $4500. We never saw them move the rest of the weekend.
