I'm back. Summer went way to fast and I am here in Grenada busy doing boat chores. They never end and this year they are much worse. Thinking about my friends who have their boat or what is left of their boats in St. Marteen, Puerto Rico, B.V.I, and all of the other hurricane ravished islands, I am very happy to have a boat to work on.
Mile High Dream is starting to show her age with more water entering through somewhere that is good(acceptable). It is never good so I had the marina take the keel off, reinforce the hull and then reattach the keel. Now that MHD is in the water, the water is no longer flowing in thru unknown places.
With any project, they lead to more projects. The mast was removed to balance the removal of the keel. Wires were cut and now I busy trying to find out how to reattach them. I think it might be good to have a reliable working radio, depth gauge and a few other navigational items.
I then took the time to paint the bottom of the boat. Busily working away my boat neighbor came buy and asked " did you buy the paint here."
"Yes, why do you ask?"
"They have a deal going that if you buy the paint, they apply it for free."
Now I find out. Such is life in the boat yard.
The out of water projects finished, I splash MHD and hook her to a mooring ball. I attack the inside projects. With the intense heat and humidity, I try to finish early and then head to the beach to soak in the cool clear Caribbean waters.
It is good to be back.
