I just posted a long blog entry and when I went to check it out, it wasn't there. Hmmm… Sometimes I love technology. In any case, I will give you the highlights and move on, like I have a choice at this point.
It's been a busy couple of weeks. I had Panacea towed in a couple of weeks ago. She just wouldn't turn over and try as I could, she was dead in the water. Thanks to TowBoatUS. It's good to have them around.
It ended up to be a starter PLUS a ground cable from the battery to the engine block. Alex and I pulled the starter first and checked it out and it was bad, so ordered one, overnight, whew! I had to because I had a charter coming up on me fast. We got it installed and still no go.
Had another guy come in at that point and he pointed to to a bad ground wire and we replaced that and there you have it. Panacea's lights are brighter than they've ever been AND she starts right up. That's a plus.
So now I'm continuing to rub, scrub and getting ready to touch up the paint and then lay down some new non-skid on the deck. It's needed and after all the polls, it's going to be white. It's clean and cool in the summer. I was shooting for a color of Pelican Poop, but it was to psychedelic.
Just a reminder, you need to book early for New Years Eve here in Fort Myers Beach. There are a lot of boats that go out for that special night and we are proud that we only take a total of 6 passengers. It's a great private sail and with the food, drink, music and fireworks at midnight. It's a very special way to bring in the new year.
Speaking of VERY, VERY SPECIAL Specials. Check out the front page of the website and read about the Voyage For Dreamers. Imagine taking you and someone special or you and up to five other friends or family out for a sail on your own private yacht. The captain and 1st mate will take care of everything for you. It's a full day sail then once back in port, you have two staterooms onboard for the night.
Go to the website at http://www.FantaSeaSailing.com for the price. It's on the front page.
Also check out the Online Availability Calendar, also on the front page and pick you dates. Call early it's going to be a great season and don't let that special time get away from you. As I've always said, "If not now, when?"
On that note, I'm off and running. Lots to catch up on and I'll be putting up some photos here within the next couple of days, so check back, tell your friends to check in and let's get out there on the water. It's Time to Sail…
Call Now, Sail TODAY!
I'll see you on the dock…
