Late Wednesday I was finally able to start prepping my boat for launching. Off came the cover and a new coat of bottom paint applied. On Thursday the boat was covered with staining maple tree buds so out came the pressure washer and she looked great. Friday was launching day, the weather was perfect and the tide was right all that power washing was for not! The maple tree stained the boat worse than the day before! No time to clean, I'll get her in and wash her at her berth, that was the plan anyway. When I did tie her up there was no hose at the dock!
In the meantime during the "shakedown" cruise I circled the Mega Yacht "Eos"....WOW!
305' length with masts towering 200' above the deck! Stainless steel fittings on her alone could pay for a pretty nice vessel! The stay lines are actually solid stainless steel rods! If I owned a vessel like that all I'd have to do to keep her spic & span is to write out a check. But what would be the fun in that?
My boat...21' in length 8'6" beam and all my fittings are stainless steel but for some reason doesn't look as impressive as they do on the "Eos"!
And with all the staining on my boat, they probably thought Sanford & Son showed up!
"J's Escape" at the ramp.
Figure head as the stainless steel shines!
Lobster boat goes by.
A bit closer.
In the late afternoon sun.
Looking up......way up!
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
