Jan 31, 2012 - She floats!
After helping Gene's sister Josie work on repairing her boat and making her ready to sail, we floated the boat today and went for a sail. Cyndy, Josie, Gene and Chief launched the boat on Boca Ciega Bay. We stepped the mast and motor sailed around the bay for a few hours. We headed back to Josie's condo seawall at sunset and tied her up. Looks like everything worked well and had a nice afternoon.Jump to full entry

Had to get a part for our truck and could only find it a a junk yard in Tampa. This water fountain was out in front in the parking lot, pretty nice hu?Jump to full entry
