It is a good week. I spent some time with the MAST folks. We took a schooner ride and then had some dinner. It was great to catch up. The weather has warmed up to the point where I am sweating in the daytime. It is a very nice change.
I finally got my outboard motor back yesterday. It runs very nicely. Of course my sons will have to work several years to pay off the debt from the repairs. While I was picking up the motor I saw the J-World instructors who are teaching my MAST friends. They were holding a boom that had a serious kink in it. Upon closer inspection it had a big crack in the aluminum too! Apparently it decided to bend over double – or near double – with my friends on the boat. I can’t wait to hear that story.
I am starting to feel the pressure of getting ready to leave Boca Chica. That is actually a good thing as I have been sitting on my butt and getting fat most of the time the last couple of months. It is time for a change. It has been motivating me to finish various boat projects.
