No boat traffic on lake

Moved CM to temp slip

Moved Catalina 27 to my old slip

move my CM26 to the docks...perfect, as always--the boat, not me.

Backed trailer, loaded boat, cranked up keel smooth as glass, easy as pie.

Waiting in water til SB shop openned.

Powerwashed underside...looks better than I even would have expected after being in the water for 16 months with a few good scrubbings.

Brought her home, safe in our side back yard.

Will clean her up and re-organize everything for the buyers and label lines with tape as a courtesy.

They pick up the boat this weekend.

Wife and I will be staying over on the new boat this weekend.

Will both miss the old boat, wish her well with her new owners, and get to know the new one.

Going to take a nap...I am whooped!

Your adventure reads like a fairytale. My story reads like a horror movie. A B label horror movie.

PostSubject: Perspective, time of day, day of week   Wed Apr 25, 2012 7:41 pm

2 weeks ago, I was dreaming, a week ago I was mad as Hell at the LO. A few days ago, I was listing off her flaws that I need to repair. The blower screetching noise fixed itself...for now...so for now I'm happy. I now know that the black handle is a fuel cutoff switch, so all is good. I got one boat out of the water and another moved over, so all is good. I am self-employed--my business partner and I took the day off to go work/play/have a nice lunch at the lake, so all is good. The marina is working with me as I work to secure back my Az registration docs from the LO who has hijacked the wrong doc to file a useless UCC--the marina lady is patient and has given me 30 days to resolve the matter, so all is good. Last week, or earlier this week, these things were all problems...they worked themselves out...perspective!

Our perspective changes (mostly out of frustration of how things don't move quickly enough or go the way they would have if we were in charge--guess what! We're not).

Perspective depends on time of day, day of week....

Your horror movie will continue if you drea of cutting parts off one and creating another....Dr. F! :-)
Your horror movie is only so long.

BTW, the site looks really nice!

BTW x 2...you should see some more traffic...This morning, I posted on the main forum page at the other site, the main page, that you have a nice new site at clippermarine.org.

More positive changes on the way. Soon, the site will have nothing to do with my body arts site, so people in restrictive offices will not hit filter blocks.
