Our Masts Are Back Where They Belong
10 October 2010 | Catskill Creek, NY
Arrived at Hop O Nose Marina after noon and joined in the festivities of a Pig Roast. They sure did a quick job rebuilding and repairing docks after the flood over a week ago. Our masts are scheduled to arrive on Monday and hopefully be stepped on Tuesday. Masts arrived AOK except driver forgot to leave the hardware. Greg got a ride to a hardware store. Will have to buy new SS hardware and replace later. We met Susan and Dean on "Autumn Borne" formerly from East Aurora. We enjoyed cocktails onboard their boat. Susan also graciously gave me a ride to the store; I filled most of her trunk and backseat with our provisions. Masts were stepped on Tuesday during high tide and we put the booms on Wednesday. We will leave on Thursday for the SSB installation near Kingston.
