Is 10 a.m. Too Early For A Beer?

Cheryl & Scott, the Tourist Attractions
the small boat in the middle is a tour boat, yes, we are part of the tour..."and these are the poor people who recently got hit by lightening causing 10K in damage. And these poor folks have a wooden boat..."

When I hauled Scott up the mast, to the very top, he finds the VHF antenna bracket also gone.

The rigging looks good, there is still power going up the wires and the antenna cable and the connector is still attached so we can 'easily' attach a new antenna.

I'm not sure what happened the rest of the day as it is all a blur or I am blacking out the reality of this lightening strike (ie bad moods).

We have cruiser friends back in the states getting ready to return so they may have some room to haul some stuff down for us. Thanks for the offer.

Anyone want to buy a boat?

Yes,yes, yes we take a gazillion pictures of Hilo. We are told that's what you do when you don't have children to take a gazillion pictures of. I tried to keep it to just the sailing-type pictures of him but all you cat lovers won't care either way. Enjoy.
