Hi friends. Our week consisted of us mainly preparing for the final major painting projects to be completed. We completed the necessary steps for the bait tank and bus stop to receive a new paint job. Tomorrow, Jamie and myself will be down at the boat to scuff up the first coat of gloss, wipe down, and hang out as the painters finish up the final coat. We'll have Sunday off and then on Monday, it'll be time to hustle up and get the boat back in the water. A few other chores on the list before we say farewell to Knight & Carver Yacht Center include sanding the rails to be refinished at another time, put the liferafts back on the boat, install all the new zincs and pray the we're back in the water Tuesday or Wednesday. Drew, Tommie, Mark, Jamie and myself are really looking forward to getting the boat back in the water and once back at the docks, our dirtiest chores are pretty much over and all the remains are little "knick knack" cosmetic things, putting the new freezer box on the upper deck, painting the deck, refinishing the rails and a few mechanical repairs. We're starting to see light at the end of the tunnel and it's a beautiful sight.
In other news, Jed went under the knife on Thursday to have his tendon repaired in his thumb and all went well and from what he said, it will be six to eight weeks of recovery time followed by some physical therapy. Jed's doing just fine and here's to a speedy recovery to have him back on the boat sometime in August.
With that, our weekend is looking good for some relaxation, Clippers/Lakers game sevens, Kings/Coyotes hockey and the Gator By the Bay festival at Spanish Landing in San Diego Bay. We hope you all enjoy your weekend as well. Take care everyone!
Here's what went down today. Breakfast, then American Hustle(movie), then a whole lot of tuna leader making, then the Charger game. Listen to this. Our goofball crew member Mark Clark, well he claims to be a Raider fan but the only time he seems to care what they do is when they play the Chargers. Myself and the rest of the crew usually bet 20 dollars on each game. Well today couldn't have played out better. Prior to the start of the game he assumed we were betting and to rub it in that the Raiders are no good, I claimed I didn't want to bet because I'd feel I was taking money out of his sons pocket. He insisted we bet so we did. I still had it planned out to give him his money back if the Chargers blew them out as the ultimate rub in. So if you didn't know, it was a nail biter. Mark missed the last couple minutes of the game and everyone on board made him think that the Raiders won. He immediately came down to the galley and just absolutely let me have it. I don't know
how but I managed to keep a straight enough face to still have him think the Raiders won. Ever since then he's been on cloud 9. I don't know how and when I'll break the news and bring his reality crashing down to a major low. I'm sure looking forward to it though. He thinks he's up 120 bucks but more importantly to him he gets to talk all that smack.
Anyways, moving on. It's cocktail hour now and soon we will be feasting on a veal chop. One more day. The weather is fantastic right now. A beautiful sunset too.
Fishing reports for stomps are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
