16 May 2019 - Happy Father's DAY -- Sunday

Happy Father's DAY to all the father's out there.... The weather is NOT cooperating today for the BBQ this afternoon at HOP-O-Nose Marina... (Father's Day celebration)... BUT the boat club has ordered a TENT to cover the patio at the restaurant...SO the PARTY will go ON !! Yeah!!
Yesterday we had the first delivery of the Summer Boat Project supplies... 5/8" dia. Water hose for the main engine; nylon strapping to replace that that holds the deck jerry cans of gasoline, and diesel; and 100 feet of "sta-set" line to replace all the "lazy-Jack" lines on the mains'l.
We also replaced all the cockpit pillows.... SO now that area looks pretty "SPIFFY"!!!
It sometimes seems like things are wearing out too fast.... But, I guess, when you consider that we put almost 3000 miles a year on AB...and in the worst environment possible for boats (salt water, and salt laden air), and associated gear... it's to be expected...
Continuous maintenance is a pain................ Required, but still a PAIN.  Lubrication; polishing; replacement of wearing type items.... Filters; impellers; all the usual stuff too....
SO.................. Rain today; inside projects this AM... then the party at 1300 hours...
We just completed a father's day "face-TIME" with Ruth... (Including LILLY, and Maisie)... NICE !!
OK.... Back to cleaning up the main salon.... Yesterday, we had our annual BOAT Inspection by the USCG Auxiliary... SO, I had disassembled the "ditch Bag"... to show the inspector the flares; documentation; etc. SO.............all that has to go back into the "bag". We have two ditch bags.... And hope that we NEVER have to use them....
OK.... Time to WORK.... And another coffee.
