Even in Paradise we have bad days:
1) Dinghy engine failed, leaving me stranded on boat.
2) Hitched a ride to shore with friend. He was to bring me back. He met a girl and let me stranded on shore.
3) My crew Andy accepted scooter ride home - spent night in hospital with road rash. I spent most of the next day getting medicine, changing bandages, and so forth.
4) Found that Reboot's transmission has a oil leak.
Oh well, Andy will heal, fortunately no scrapes on her face. Got new prop for outboard, working again --- but who knows for how long (it is after all 35 years old.)
Spider people arrive tomorrow.
Fair winds and following seas.
