Holes in our boat

Sitting in a marina.
Watching workers put holes in our boat.
Holes are not good in boats.

We don't like holes, however some holes are necessary.
Holes for the radar cables for our new radar dome. Holes to strengthen the standards for the bimini.
I guess I will let them continue.
Getting our new radar installed

Marinas are hot. You can't swim in the water. There is very little breeze, but they are the best place to get work done. Getting needed work done and the workers to do it is much easier when we are physically here rather than trying to coordinate from thousands of miles away. When we are here we become a much higher priority to the contractors.

We commented to each other as we were sitting and waiting for another contractor to show up- "at least we are not wasting a day of our vacation".



We love to hear your comments.

    2. Thanks for asking. Sometimes I forget that people don't know all these terms I have been learning. See the new picture above.
