Re: Going, going gone....
Thanks all for the good wishes. As I'd feared, we've had no internet since before the election, until an hour ago. Who won? Just kidding; EVERYBODY is talking about it down here....
The last week has been absolutely the worst weather I've seen outside a hurricane in this part of the world, with several islands experiencing some of the worst flooding EVER, even including hurricanes. Every town had new lakes and the locals were outdoing one another naming them. We filled a 10" deep bucket with water in 20 hours and the rain kept going for three more days! Tough charter, but they were great sports.
Had to enter the Tobago Cays on radar (to see all the moored boats), as vis was only about 50 feet at times! Thankfully, I'd previously placed waypoints so I had a "marked channel" into the anchorage and hitting the coral wasn't a worry. Ain't yachting fun?
But the sun's back and we've finally gotten the multiple changes of clothes for each day dry. How do the folks in the PNW and SE Ak live with that continual dampness?
Got a true "back to back" next week, dropping off and picking up on the same day. Going to be a busy few weeks, I think.
Hon, may I have another Johnnie Black? A guy's gotta get prepared.
