NICE easy trip up from Cocoa to Titusville. The trip was only 20 miles, so we were anchored at
N 28 37.784 W080 48.313 by 1030 hours. We dumped the dinghy over the side (from the foredeck)...and motored into the Westland Marina to see Brian and Sheila Strutt (s/v Moonshadow).
They looked great!!! The boat is now for sale ($$$) So we talked a bit about that....and their new apartment is Windsor ONT.
Brian and I did investigate a problem with his "house" battery system, and charging system. I think we made some progress... in getting the Xantrex Freedom on line to charge the batteries... (The boat had been hit with lightning at some point, and It's hard to tell what's working correctly, and what's NOT).
I did take a bunch of "stuff" to the dumpster for them...
Today (Saturday) we're sitting still at Titusville... and going to help Brian and Sheila get the topsides looking better... (boatsoap; on-and-off; deck brushes, etc.).... They got a quote of $1800 yesterday to detail the topsides; WOW !!! I'm thinking that a few chemicals, and a lot of elbow grease will make some good progress... today.
They've got someone who wants to take a look at the boat on Sunday.... SO it's time to make it look good.
Sheila made lunch on board... and we had dinner at the Irish Pub ( great food but VERY LOUD crowd).
Susan and I were back here on AB, just before the rain hit... Good timing!!! (dinghy lifted out of the water, on the starboard Bow...), etc.
