It'll be fine at a dock and people tend to watch out for boats in marina's anyway. I'm sure they would call if the boat had a problem. It will be fine.

Hot as hell her in NY with strong southerly breezes now for a few days.

So what ever happened to coming to Key West. I started out in Ithaca in 93 and finally landed here in Key West in November 2011 and loving it.

tied. to the dock, listening to the wind and rain outside.
Marina the cabin girl is busy watching the DVD. I'm listening to
the radio and thinking about all I need to do tomorrow when we
hope to get ashore and spend some time with family in NY.
I've decided to leave the boat in the water as opposed to hauling out.
I hope it fate's well.

I so want to be out there with you. I'm tired of putting in a patio behind the house.

The guy took your money, sold your dock to someone else , left you in the lurch and then cursed you for not leaving your boat and helping him?

I would be wary of this dude in the future.

blowin' a gail yesterday when we returned to the boat.
The marina owner was out in the dock standing next to the silverton motor boat that is in my slip as I'm tied to the end of the tee.
The sky was about to bust open and I went aboard to get rain gear for the crew and myself. the crew was waiting in thetruck. I came in deck and got out a couple more linea to double up the dock lines.
When I was tying in my dock lines the owner cussed me for not helping him with securing the silverton!
I took the high road and shrugged it off. Afterward he sheepishly apologized.
I told him if he needed help in the future he should just say so, I'm not a mind reader, and some people don't want help.
I pride myself on not needing help. when I do,I'm not shy about asking.
Some folks are funny.
hope the wind moderates , would like to get to Tangier.
