S/V Tiger Lilly

Rig heavy, reef early, and pray often; for God does not assure us an easy passage, but He does promise a safe anchorage...

TIGER LILLY - WE ARE BACK!!

14 July 2011 | St. Augustine Marine Center
HOT, WET, and DUSTY!!
OK. OK. We know that we have not been keeping up our BLOG, and we know that many of you have repeatedly been here to see what's up... Well, (time for our tired excuse) we have been really busy lately training a couple new to sailing on their Hunter 42, delivering a CSY44 walk-through from Connecticut to Florida, renting out Lilly's Jacksonville home, and now we are in the boat yard doing some much needed repair and painting work. We really are working on a new BLOG, and we do have some really good material on some fascinating people: like Gordon the gold and gem trader who would travel the most dangerous parts of Africa trading with the locals, or George the Hungarian Freedom Fighter who started out fighting for his and his family's survival at the ripe old age of ten, and of course we have been busy sailing Tiger Lilly and working the To-Do List. At any rate, we promise that by the end of this haul-out, perhaps in about three weeks time, we will have a new BLOG posting. Here is a picture of Lilly shucking oysters in Milford, Connecticut - the fellows on the F/V Mohawk gave us a free bag of 100. Of course, Miss "I Can Do It" who never shucked a single oyster in her life prior to this bag of 100, shucked every one in a single setting. Oh, did we tell you that tomorrow we have to drive back to Jacksonville for her surgery pre-op? Seems she developed a ligament problem on the middle finger of her right hand, they call it trigger finger, but we call it shucking finger... The lass simply cannot do ANYTHING in moderation, but then that is why we call her Tiger Lilly :-)
See ya!
