So Memorial Weekend has come and gone and Walk A-Bout still remains in a dusty gravel parking lot among many others. To step back a couple of days she was to receive a fresh coat of bottom paint the prior week and be in the water waiting for us to rig the sails and stow a multitude of items purchased for her in the off season. We then received an e-mail from the marina telling us that the paint shipment was damaged and UPS would not even delivery it. (My guess is the back of a trailer is now ready anti fouling water) Nevertheless the new cans were to arrive the Friday before the holiday weekend but the marina did not have the time/staff to do the job on that day.
Well hec, we can do a little sanding and slap on some paint not a problem. Pieces of cake just roll up our sleeves and have at it!! Unfortunately when we arrived on Saturday we were told the paint had yet to arrive - earliest was to be Tuesday because of the Holiday, "Island Time "the woman informed us from across the counter.
Hhhhmmmm Island Time. I guess we have been living too long always expecting to have what we want today available for us yesterday. Hhhhmmmm Island Time, wait Island Time=Beer Time??? I think I can adjust.
By the way never sand off bottom paint in a yellow tacky Hawaiian shirt, unless that was the look you wanted.
