THURS. 13 FEB 2020 -- Auto Delivery day -- Tiki HUT party
Yesterday Morning was the time when “s/v Last BOAT” was scheduled to be towed out of VERO, and north to Sebastian…. Nelson and Mary had requested that Susan and I transport their car to Sebastian, after they made it to the Marina… So they gave us the keys to the car, and $20, and in Nelson’s dry sense of humor style… He says… “use the car for anything you’d like, but By the Way, there’s NO GAS in it….” WELL… that was no PROBLEM at all…. We gassed her up…. And did use it to take US, and Kathy (s/v SEEKER) to Publix…. (no Publix RACE yesterday !!! YEAH )

Then in the PM… we drove up to Sebastian to find s/v Last Boat half in the slip and half out in the channel…. On the way up there… the tow boat operator said it was an extremely LOW tide…and He was worried about the available depth of water at their proposed slip…. RIGHT ON!!!! Not enough water to get even half way INTO the slip…. But the most problematic thing about the low water is the mechanics wanted to BACK “last boat” into the takeout slip… and LAST BOAT has a “spade rudder”… hanging down there… very VULNERABLE to sideways breaking…. NOT GOOD IF there’s insufficient water to float the boat… YOU CAN’t DRAG a spade rudder through mud….
SO……………….. Mary then delivered Susan and I back to the Vero Beach mooring field, where we soon attended the afternoon cocktail GAM (meeting) under the Tiki Hut…
Yesterday I brought the Dobro to the GAM ….. but very few even knew what it was… OR even listened…. Sort of disappointing…. BUT hey… that’s audiences…. Sometimes you “win” , sometimes YOU don’t…
FUN time anyway!!!!
Evening was very relaxing… we had lunchtime leftovers for dinner….so that was easy…. (ON the way up to Sebasian Susan and I stopped at a restaurant called the “Country HAM & Egg”….. Wonderful !!!! those were the leftovers…. Tons of GREAT FOOD.
OK…. Time for more coffee, and it’s also time for our Friday AM pumpout…. (not that those two thoughts SHOULD be in the same sentence….  hehehehe
