With lot's of people watching I pulled the best landing in a while, and barely squeezed the fenders. Sweet! Not that we're slobs or anything, but we do not dress up for a day on the water, in slacks and French striped sailing shirts, and out boat is not a Hinkley. So, Deb in her Navy Tee, and me in some Walmart Tee, and swim trunks with old sperry's must of looked really cool to these folks watching football in their cockpit on their 32 inch flat screen, and dressed for cocktails at Tavern on the Green. One guy came over and complimented me on the docking, and turns out he bought his boat in Fairhaven NY, and he's been to Sodus for fishing derby's. Nice guy. I guess we worry for nothing sometimes.
So far so good folks. We stepped the mast at Riverview Marina in Catskill, and it's not a full service marina as far as the mast goes, but we got her done, and without any hassles, so all is well. The owner Mike is a nice guy, and pretty laid back as long as you're straight with him. Expensive in my book, but as we get closer to NYC, all the cost goes up.
And now, the pics...
You should know Debra was the photographer in these, as I was steering for a change. I deleted all the photos of the deck, her hand, thumb, etc. :)
