Weekend Report »« Finally Here!

Good Day!

A good day today, I painted out the old name and applied the new name transfers and tomorrow night we’re having a little renaming BBQ as Dave is donating me a BBQ to clamp on the stern. Also today Jonathon, an Argentine living in the Dominican republic and currently here trying to sell his old boat, donned his scuba gear and scrubbed the barnacles from my bottom.

So I went scuba’ing today for the first time which is a very weird experience but I’m pleased to say the bottom of the boat looks pretty ok.

Today was election day so it was half day closing and there was a lot of noise and has been over the last week, individuals of one party or another take it upon them selves to strap the biggest sound system they can find to the back of their car and drive around making as much noise as possible, preferably at 2 in the morning when I’m trying to sleep.

Anyhoo, it’s makes no difference if the shops shut on a half day or not as they have nothing I want. Which is both a blessing and a curse, If I need something I go and find out that they don’t stock it then improvise, quite a cost controlling procedure which is helping.

Thats all for now, we’re off out on Friday to Rose island for a bit of a sail and see how she goes, photos to follow.
