2 and half weeks at Crab Creek!
To install the furler we raft along side Rasmus , a Najad 390, that is rafted on to Ru'ah, Wolfgang and Gemma's boat,(our OCC hosts). This operation entails assembling the 50ft furler on the pontoon and then straddling Ru'ah and Rasmus to lift it, with the spinnaker halyard, (and the help of Garby and Wolfgang 2) on to the mast .. . .phew!!!! Next Bob installs 2nd charger, new gas regulators, new anchor and about 20 fence posts!(not on the boat).
Other highlights include the best Crab cakes on earth at Edgewater Restaurant, The Blind Boys of Alabama Gig at the Rams Head Inn, The Grand Opening of the Reuter Handrail(re fence posts), an evening in the emergency department (Bobs Knee),arrival of inflatable kayak, a hair cut (with special highlights) a night on the hard, including hot tub, bath, king sized bed, wonderful wine and food at Patty and Davids'(Patriche 11) home, and an expedition to Cosco!!
