It was 99 days ago that I pulled all of the gear - a surprisingly lot of gear - out of Spartina. Masts, sails, fire extinguisher, flares, flashlight, dock lines, sun block, vhf radio, knives (filet and pocket), flotation vests......the list went on and on. That's 99 days that included surgery, rehab, sanding, painting and epoxy work. Spartina is about as done as she'll get. I wish I could say that she looks like new, but really I've just traded one set of brush strokes for another.
Today I put all that gear back. I can't tell you how good it felt. And the Honda outboard started on the sixth pull. Yes, life is good.
And there's even a decent forecast this weekend.
