When we were home in September for Lilia’s birthday, two charter catamarans burned in the marina. We were not here to see it and how the initial clean-up went to save the dolphins and as much of the sea life as possible, but we were back to watch as they spent weeks cutting these boats apart to haul them out in pieces or as you will see they got to the point they could tow the remainder to the boat ramp. The process used to bring what was left of the hull to the boat ramp was a small panga pulling the hull with plastic jugs and barrels as buoys. I am not sure you realize how difficult it is until you watch this 115 engine try to pull it through the water ( lots of water resistance). The guys in the water are trying to ensure she stays afloat. Opps she got stuck in the canal.
Take Two got her very close to our mooring ball. Yikes! We didn’t actually see it make it by our boat as the original plan was they pulled it back to its spot and probably cut more off, but we did see it out of the water later that day, so they were finally successful.
Boat work is ongoing. Dee sanded and protected our gangplank which is beautiful now and everyone compliments us on it, and he did some much-needed caulk work in the bathrooms. I pulled the ugly black treads off our interior steps and added the clear and we love the new look! Check it out in the video.
One beautiful evening as we sat on the front deck enjoying the calm waters and light winds, Dee put Chicken Hawk in the air….. Here are some more shots of the beautiful community we call home for now. Enjoy….
Carlos and his wife Daylin visit PA to check out the marina and the area before moving their Endeavour 44 Fat Cat to join us in Mexico. We will see them again…
