Sally finally fall in Florida
Life has been busy on board. A cold front came through that finally broke the humidity and lowered the temps to a somewhat more reasonable level. I’ve started working on the teak (yet again). The black grunge that covers the teak has been a formidable opponent. It takes a significant amount of elbow grease, along with the teak cleaner and water to make any progress. Being that it is mostly comprised of ash and soot from burning the sugar cane it has an amazing tenacity. A sticky black residue much like burnt sugar in the bottom of a pan, hard to get off! I’ve managed to get the starboard side done and about 1/3 of the port side. Even with lower temps the sun has been relentless. I can only work a couple of hours at a time before having to give up. I don’t need to go to the gym to work up a sweat. Although I don’t think I could market it as a form of exercise. Crawling on your hands and knees while shoving your body in a 7 inch space hanging over the side of the boat with a scrub brush and a bucket of water. Somehow I think it has no wow factor. Have to tell you though soul cycle or pelaton got nothing on me.
Lest you think we have no fun at all we took yesterday off and went to Indiantown. Janice and Kevin (Aria III) have arrived back from Vancouver. Aria III is also a Pacific Seacraft 37. We met them last year in Stuart. The marina was having a flea market that morning. We didn’t see anything we couldn’t live without but we did have a wonderful visit with Janice and Kevin. They’ve moved Aria to the work yard there with a list of tasks a mile long to accomplish before they splash. We enjoyed a fun lunch at the Indiantown Golf Course. Nothing fancy but perfect for us. We hope to see them here in Stuart before we leave.
The picture was the sky out the hatch the other morning isn't it beautiful.
I never seem to take pictures when we get together with people. Too busy yacking
