Well as the rest of the country is fighting with cold, snow and wet rainy conditions, I'm glad to say we are warm and dry, except for the occasional thunderstorm here and there. I'm enjoying it and so are the customers on Star of Orion. I've been pretty busy this last couple of weeks.
I mull it around in my head that this is way too early to be letting the rest of the world in the northern hemisphere know that we are hanging out in shorts and tanks. I try to wait until December to do that, but what the heck it's good down here. I'm having a ball and want you to come down and enjoy it yourself.
Capt. Ron and I have been busy doing the fall maintenance on Star. She's looking and sailing good. This week a new steaming light, got the anchor light working, not sure why, I like to put my light on the boom where people can see me when they come into an anchorage. But the law is the law. Put an new lens on the stern light and changed a bunch of clamps.
Capt. Glen dove on her bottom a couple of days ago and now she is slipping through the water again at a nice smooth pace. She'll be waxed in a couple of weeks and the decks are being cleaned and polished. It's been fun rubbin' and scrubbin' and making a mess of her and then jammin' to get it all cleaned up before the clients come on board. But when the do they just don't know that it looked like an old garage just moments before. Dan, don't tell mama that it works that way.
We'll be doing a couple of weddings so far this coming month and a long day sail with lunch for some smart folks that just couldn't relax in a 4 hour block. I look forward to them all.
Sailing in Fort Myers Beach is easy… Just give me a call at: 800-975-5824 and I can get you in the books. It's just that easy. Sunset Sails, Half Day Charters, Full Day Charters are all available, but please think a head and book early. Things fill up fast.
My Dad, he's 88 will be visiting November 3rd through the 17th. It will be good to have him here. He's wanted to get here for a long time and is just laying his second wife to rest on the 31st in Manhattan Kansas. Then he will fly out here to sail with me and enjoy the water. It will be great to have him here. Also my sister will come down during that time to visit. So it's family time. I'm blessed to have them and we are going to enjoy our time together. I hope you have the chance to meet. I want to grow up to be just like him.
So snow or no snow, don't forget that I've got your boat sitting at the dock and she's ready for you and your family or guests. Clean, pretty and safe. Welcome home and aboard.
I'll wait for you on the dock…
