Denny and I are working at the Annapolis Boat Show. Denny's job is to build all of the docks in one location, then the water crew move all the docks into the above waterway a couple days before the the show starts on October 5-9. This is the sailboat show. Then all of the boats come in and tie up to the docks. And then all of the vendors come in and set up. I'm working in the office and typing all of the vendors name badges and their employee's. There are over 800 vendors and anywhere from 3-20 employees. So I've been typing many name badges over the last few weeks.
Then when the sailboat show is over, all of the sailboats leave which is a big production and there is a "change over" party to watch the beginning of Denny and the water crew to change the docks for all the power boats. They only have a couple days to do this. The power boat show starts October 12. Then when the show is over all of the docks have to be disassembled and stored for the winter.
Denny is working hard in 86 degree weather, doing a lot of grunt work. He tells me he is one of the younger guys. Many of the workers are retired and want something to do for a couple months. He is enjoying himself, but is sore and eating much ibuprofen.
Me, I'm in a air conditioned office with the owner and 6 other employees. The group of women are very nice, friendly and helpful.
We are anchored in Back Creek right in front of the boat show office. It is about a 2 minute commute by dingy for me. Can't get any better than that!
Life is good on Kokomo!
