Summer Days

Warm weather, sunny skies.  Today I stopped by West Marine to drop some stuff off and the store was jammed.  So on my way home I stopped down at Southwind to see who was working on their boat.  Of course everyone was.  Now that the KK River is to be dredged there is a strong motivation to get boats ready for launch.  Of course with McKinley Marina closed for repairs until May 1st the window will be short.  The KK will be closed for about 4 days starting around May 14th for dredging.
Should be an interesting launch period

The Dark Side

I guess it was inevitable. Sooner or later someone I knew was going to launch before I did. And this year it happened. Last Saturday Dan launched Why Knot, his 32 foot Silverton.
