I'm Not Really Smiling Inside

11 June 2008 | The Most Difficult Place to Get To In Tropical Dreamer
Keith, hot and humid
In order to get to this spot, I had to go below deck into the rear cabin, I had to crawl into the back of the back cabin, I had to unscrew a hatch in the rear, crawl through that hatch, across the open area at the back of the boat, into literally the farthest corner of the sailboat. Once wedged in there, my job was to screw in the bolts that hold the base of the Hydrovane. It was the hardest job I've done physically and mentally since before I became a lawyer and everything I've done here so far prepared me to run that gauntlet. So that smile you see is in reality me thinking "get me the *** out of this hole." In fact, you can just about see me thinking, take the *** picture already and get down there and do what you need to do to the screws so I can get out of here.
