Buckets and Barnacles

02 May 2009 | Solomon Bay, St. John
May 2

Red Hook status tumbles after rocky night in outer bay and dunking of Treo PDA during egress at dinghy dock. Disassembled, soaked in distilled water and dried pricey electronics in warm oven, probably to little avail (haven't tried crank-up yet), so purchased cheapest replacement unit.

Coral World Marine Park and Aquarium, just OK. Worth a look, but don't put it on your bucket list. Dollar ride for phone and fish on local's safari bus was most interesting part of day.

Accomplished afternoon motor across narrow channel to Solomon Bay on St. John for second rocky evening, but wanted to visit nearby Cruz Bay, another great little spot worth return visit. Indeed, may do so tomorrow for breakfast before searching out a calm (he said hopefully) anchorage, probably either Francis or Leinster Bay. Never found friends from Rum Cay, Richard and Terry on "Sea Wolf", moving crewed charter operation on their cat from Bahamas to Red Hook.

Maximum engine RPM is low due, most likely, to crustacea adhering to prop. Restorative dive tomorrow before eggs and bacon a possibility. The few malefactors befouling forward hull will also be 'whacked'. CIA doesn't know what real 'wet work' is.
