    Okay, okay.... Iíll fess up. Binford is the ďold friend.Ē

    In my defense, however, I am blessed with a very competent crew who takes care of all such things as lines and fenders without my needing to pay it any attention at all. Iím usually not crewing so I didnít have the routine down. Not at all! You couldnít imagine how big a sap I felt like when I realized the fenders were still out, well out of the harbor!

    It was a great ride and my colleague/sort-of-boss had an absolute blast as well! Thanks again, Jim, for a wonderful afternoon!

    Iím on my iPad right now, so Iíll post some pics once I get back on the laptop.

      Count your blessings if you have a competent crew. I deleted names to protect the guilty! It was a terrific day, and I have a new CG inspection form for my records.

            Hmm, have to test the other one and see if itís magnetic enough. Good thought.

            edit: nope... real stainless, not magnetic. I left a message with the divers all my neighbors use and cross fingers.

              Huge thanks to T&C diving, my bracket was returned free of charge since Iím a current customer(was not expecting that). Iím going to call it a good luck charm, but tie a string to it until itís bolted down just in case...

                    Last post July 2019. Surely something happened last summer that you will admit to and post up. Don’t ask me how ...

                      We were dead in the water about 1/8 mile South end of Lopez Island in 4-5' seas.

                      Main engine had crapped out (distributor issue) so fired up the 9.9 Yami, ran fine til it didn't! Called Islander Restaurant we had just came from to get tow boat number as internet wasn't working. Owner said he would call a guy. Short time later a local came out and towed us into McKay Harbor. Took us to his place for dinner and adult beverages and played some pool. Took us to last Ferry. Uber was waiting at Anacortes and took us to truck and trailer. Came back next day to retrieve Boat.

                      Been friends since!

                      Oh when I call him his phone says "Dead Boat Ron"
