The butcher’s bill

The butchers tab from this last short bash to windward is getting longer every day. At first blush we’d thought that Escape Velocity had just shrugged off a fairly serious pasting but time has revealed that our LED TV smashed itself silly on a block of wood that apparently was partially screwed into the cabinet intended to keep the TV from smashing itself silly. Its a substantial bill.

Marce’s bruises – healable
One broken Buddha’s knot – glue-able
One Jib – irretrievable
One LED TV – replaceable
One autopilot ram – fingers crossed, touching wood -repairable

Make it so…please make it so.

Hometown welcome

We had a rainy couple of days here in St. Martin. Friday we spent the morning aboard reorganizing our equipment manuals so we can put our hands on the one we want without disassembling an entire shelf of binders.


When the rain finally stopped we wandered around the Dutch side, found a grocery store and knocked a few items off our list at the chandleries. We ended up at Barnacles for happy hour and a rainbow.



After the rainbow the rain came with a vengeance. We moved under cover but the rain kept finding us until we ended up sitting at the well-protected bar. We looked up and found our favorite Pennsylvania teams well-represented up on the ceiling.
