Back on the high seas for the summer

Getting ye old Mystic back in shape. Found someone who can fix the strut for a fraction of the price i was quoted at Canoe cove so feeling optimistic about that. In the meantime running on an Evinrude 9.9 that hopefully will be reliable enough to get us were we want to go, for now. I'm at the seaplane dock in Ganges, getting kitted out. She polished up nicely after sitting all winter on the mooring buoy. What a great vessel. Kat has redone the interior quite professionally and even sewed new drapes out of durable cotton and installed swanky new lighting in the cabin. I really love what she's done. I think moving back aboard the Mystic is going to be very good for my photography but giving up the studio i'm not quite a bassy as i once was; one just can not fit a 2x15 bass cabinet aboard a 30 foot vessel and not be completely ridiculously loud and cramped. Here's a shot from the other day when i was paddling my canoe, the Chestnut around the harbour for golden hour.
