Sunday 12th August 2012

Well what a day. 
The boys have spent all day fixing the boom, which is working great now, then running the engine which also works great.
I cooked all day, made sweet and savory muffins, biscuits, a huge salad and a chilly bake for dinner.
So we should be right for a few days out, although we had so many visitors, today and they all had to taste test a bit.
This guy turned up in the morning, and kept coming back all day, he wanted to come on as crew, no matter what we said he was determined to come with us, even to the point of giving his girlfriend money and told her To go buy groceries for the trip, man talk about a few cogs loose, we were trying not to be rude to him, but he would just not take the hint, he even came back about ten at night, still asking.... :-/
He was not a young guy well into his late 50's I'm expecting to see him on the dock in the morning and will be checking the boat before we leave to make sure he has not stowed away somewhere. 
As we are leaving just on sunset in the morning we wanted to have an early night.
Yeah that did not happen, the tow boat guy, who Tom knew from years ago came over, for us to pay him, and then stayed for a chat, well that ended in him, rigging up one of my fishing rods, and giving me a lesson in blue water fishing, which I was very excited about. 
I now have a rod and line all rigged up ready to go.
Oh as he was rigging it up he looked at the reel and said u know the movie Jaws, well this is the exact reel they used in that.  Yeahaaa.... Gonna catch me a shark, but a may need a bigger boat...hahaha

Anyway he then invited his wife to join us, that resulted in all having dinner here with drinks and a very late night, the food stores went down a fare bit... :-/
It's gonna be hard to get up in the morning.

Well tomorrow is another day.
