So were at it again, I have given myself till Wednesday to finish my final edit for our new book Boatyard Pirates. I have as many final edits as I do failed attempts with the Yuloh but we are setting off again sans engine unless by some miracle the money we need to finish paying for our brand spanking new to us 2005 Johnson 4 stroke 6hp long shaft outboard falls out of the sky.
I feel kind of guilty putting a reliable source of propulsion on The` as for the last year we have been the greatest source of entertainment around here with all of our failed attempts with the Yuloh and now add the British Seagull to the list. On the positive side we are so all consumed with actually getting the boat out of the harbor that we no longer worry about silly things like food, heat, charts, blah, blah, blah. We can worry about the important things once we actually need them which as always is on the other side of the breakwater which may as well be the dark side of the moon to us.
While we are out avoiding finding gainful employment and all the other things our parents, friends, and family wish we were doing I will leave you with what very well may become one of the best blogs in the world. These guys are doing everything right. Imagine voyaging with a wife and 3 daughters and no electricity or even plumbing, Ganymede is a home finished Cape George 31 and she is out there right now, take a peek and say hi.
