Parked At Deaton Yachts In Oriental, NC
31 May 2008
Keith, hot humid
Whoopie, we're finally here. Lunch at the village restaurant, picked up my tube for the dingy from the West Marine outlet, and drove to the marina. We walked around the outside of the boat, found a great place to park nearby with an electrical hook-up, and began settling in. First thing was to get the scooter down and take a tour of the town. We stopped first, put a ladder up to the boat, and climbed onto and into it. It's in great condition considering more than 7 months of storage. The inside actually seemed dryer and less musty than when I was sailing her last October. John Deaton came by and welcomed us not long ago. Matt just woke up from a nap. The dogs are sleeping, and we are about to work some more on the Panama land deal before getting started with the boat projects. Lots to do from here, but we're here at last!
