Gig Harbor Music 26Jun12

Tuesday: Four SSYC members, three crew and two friends enjoyed good food, music and great company at Music in the Park in Gig Harbor, WA.

Wednesday: Spent much of the day working to get a sea trial and survey on a Catalina 30. Then met my crew at Johnny’s Dock for an adult beverage. Also met a new friend who I was going to take sailing. Since my hernia surgery was moved up to 0800 this morning I changed my mind about sailing but hooked him up with friends on a  very competitive race boat named Gardyloo. He’s a new sailor and he enjoyed himself with a bunch of fun-loving, enthusiastic young people.

Thursday: Underwent my hernia surgery this morning. My little 65 lb labradoodle, Mocha, jumped on the site while I was taking a nap. Hurt like heck!! Hope there isn’t any damage.

Diesel Duck: Went over the diesel Duck with Alan Powell and Chris Davis in preparation for its delivery to Port Hardy. We went over the systems, engine, electrical and other systems as well as  how to use some of the basic things like the electric head, shower, galley, etc. Now we need to start taking her out to see how this 68,000 lb beauty handles.

SSYC Meeting and Dance: We had a DJ (Commodore Gary Bradley) who played a great selection of tunes for us old gomers to dance to. It was a fun evening but we left earlier than we normally do; My hernia was not cooperating. Get it fixed the day after tomorrow.
