Boatyard "Check" List

      We did get back in the water Friday afternoon.  Saturday we ran about 55 miles north to the city of Jacksonville.    From here we are taking about a ten day side trip up the St. Johns River which runs south from Jacksonville and is navigable for about 140 miles. 
      Meanwhile, I thought you all might like to know what a week in the boatyard “to-do” list entails:
ü Engines serviced
ü Transmissions serviced
ü Leaky fuel priming pumps replaced
ü Generator serviced
ü Impellers replaced
ü All hoses, belts, etc. inspected
ü Bottom painted
ü All zincs replaced
ü 2 scuppers repaired, repainted
ü Hull and topside buffed and waxed
ü Propellers balanced

ü Teak door refinished
ü Teak air vent repaired
ü Cabinet door repaired
ü Rub-rail section replaced
ü Salon air conditioner serviced
ü New canvas for dinghy console

And the boatyard bill, with a very large…
      Remember, Boating is Fun!!!
