Day 5

Today was the most uneventful and nearly relaxing day so far. We had a breakfast of eggs, sausage and English muffin at 8:30 and from there went out to LR to lower her back down onto her keel blocks and take care of some clean-up chores. Tomorrow at 2:00 she will be launched. Hopefully we will raise her mast befor that.

Lunch was leftover pork roast sandwiches that were great. After lunch Grady and Glenn emptied and cleaned the power boat. Jerry and I took care of more radio work including fixing some equipment. We also did a lot of work on the house again today. The Hot Tub is working perfectly and is hot. We had some issues with the cable and partially resolved them, but some of the work will belong to ComCast. We also installed a wireless router for all of our hi-tech crew.

In the afternoon we went out to the bight and made arrangements for dockage during race week. We were not comfortable with our arrangements at Stock Island. Conch Harbor in the bight is very expensive, I just cringed, but we will be there for all the festivities this way and we'll have access to parking, showers and a swimming pool. Jerry and I went for a swim to ensure that the facilities are of a quality fitting our crew. They are much too nice but our crew will have to suffer through them!

Tonight we had a fabulous chicken salad for dinner and some really good Key Lime pie for dessert. Rough life.

  1. Hey all,

    Greetings from the frozen North here in Fort Walton! Glad to hear you are in the bight. The fact you can even find a spot there is pretty amazing - how is attendance looking?

    Grady, keep em fed. Dave, drive em hard.

    Be safe, have fun and keep on writing.

    Best regards,

    The entire crew of Strategery.
