MV DavidEllis is underway! Since being launched a week ago, we've continued putting things back together at a manic pace. We spent all last week falling into bed groaning and getting up groaning, but staying after it nevertheless. We are nowhere near done, but good enough to get underway and that's what we've done. 15 July 1100 we headed out of Heritage Harbor, Wrangell towards Pt Lockwood, the entrance to Wrangell Narrows. Like a good little OCD, I ran around the boat checking, checking; not quite trusting that everything was seaworthy after 10 months on the hard.

Well boys and girls, this morning in Ketchikan, the capable folks at Peace hospital will try once more to put Humpty-Dumpty back together, again. A month ago, doing almost nothing, I injured my left shoulder (repaired 10-11 years ago, just before I retired). Turns out I tore loose one of two bicep tendons, leaving my bicep muscle flopping around where my 'guns' oughta be. And it may be that there's additional damage in the shoulder joint itself. This is all, no doubt, a continuing consequence of my full-contact life, but the injury/surgery/rehab part does get old. I don't intend this to come out as complaining as I'm very happy with my life, just not looking forward to doing this part again.
