Yesterday I was having a quiet lunch when I got a call to inform me that a boat coming into the marina had lost control and hit Reboot. The New Bern Grand Marina, like many others, has some pretty bad currents at certain times and the transient boat coming in was unaware of just how strong the current was running. In the end they hit 4 boats before getting safely tied up at the dock. Fortunately it appears that Reboot was spared any damage.
More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
