SPLASH

This is what we have been waiting for. SUMMER CAN BEGIN NOW. ¬†Go out there early again per usual now.¬†Checked on the keel paint job and got ready for the travel lift. Once the boat was picked up, painted the hull where the stands had been and the bottom of the keel and then SPLASH. Engine wasn’t turning over, had to charge the batteries for a minute and then started the diesel up. Moved into a slip and then went and bought new 15 amp fuse to replace the one we had crushed by stepping on. Quick vacuum of the cabin at the dock before putting back the mattress and floorboards (need to frame out the battery and support the floor boards by the stairs) and then motored out to a mooring. Got the main up and checked the time. Still early in the day, so we decided to just go for it. Sailed out of Three Mile no motor the whole way out of the channel into Gardiners Bay and then sailed over to Mark Cuban’s Fountainhead. Couple tacks and then headed home.

On the way back Traffic was brutal. And we missed game 7. Couldn’t even find it on the AM stations. I think everyone was visiting family on LI for Father’s Day and then all headed home after dinner, BUT WE ARE IN THE WATER. Summer 2016 is here finally.
