In preparation for the long overdue dredging of our marina, all boats need to be moved out for a month.
The deadline for doing so is next Weds December 15th
Soon ei' Lean will be floating above the bottom 24/7. No longer will her keel be sitting in mud during extreme low tides.
It's been rather cool here lately and I kept postponing our moving of the boat but since I was scheduled for surgery yesterday and would be out of commission for a while - I could wait for warmer temps no longer.
So off we went. It was clear, cool with temps in the low 40's. Fortunately there was only a gentle breeze so the wind chill was not too bad. Above is a picture exiting our marina in the channel out to the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW)
Here is the Admiral keeping watch over my helmsmanship.
It was a short 4 mile run down the ICW to Towne Creek Marina (remember that place Hayden?) where ei' Lean will sit until mid January when we will move her back here.
ei' Leans new (Temporary) home
This truck driving Mama drove us home
This is a picture of the marina this morning. There are only about 15 boats remaining to be moved. It is my understanding that there are 6 people who are refusing to move their boats. (there's always a few bad apples). It's looking pretty strange back there now with so few boats remaining.
