Today we were treated to a sailboat ride with Sam Fisher. He is an awesome gentleman. His boat is everything we want our boat to be. There isn’t a spot of dirt on his boat and everything is shipshape and has its place.
We ask permission to come aboard and he grants it. He trailers his boat down from Pennsylvania every winter and cruises the keys and the Bahamas and then trailers her back home again. Wonderful man.
He said the Chesapeake Bay was a great Harbor from the Hurricanes in the summer. We might sail our boat north when we get her fixed up.
Today we bought a little motor for our dinghy. We are now mobile. Now Barry can get a job and I can take the kids wherever I need to while he is gone. We feel much better now. Though it does cut down on our exercise.
The next step is the inboard motor. Then we can take her anyway to clean her up and get a bottom job.
