    Wire-brushed, because you walk on it.

    But now it’s so clean and fresh I don’t want to.

    This though... bedding deck fittings is supremely important! Water goes sideways in wooden boats!

    This is why you labour in a boatyard.

    And Robin likes the new bimini!

    Fun sail combo today ó spinnaker from the mizzen and genoa from the main.

    Lovely easy run.

    The only boat in Hopewell, which in normal years would have 20. Wonderful!

    Good for you, Dave. That's where I'd be right now if the border were open. Ah, well. We all play the hand we're dealt, and I've gotten a better one than many people have right now even if I can't cruise Georgian Bay this summer.

    Enjoy!

    Tom

    It’s like 1955 up here. Not a soul came into this beautiful cove, Hopewell Island Harbour, all day.

    I skinny dipped repeatedly, in the wonderful warm sun.

    And I don’t think that’s why!

    Itís kind of fun. Is this what retirement is supposed to be like?
    Nope, I think you are normally supposed to retire from doing a crappy boring job that you hate.

    You, on the other hand.......

    Every half-century you should replace the cushions in your focsle. (I think LFH said this...)

    Very nice Dave. How long are you planning to stay out? We got back from our most recent cruise a few days ago and we are already wondering why we came back.
    - Chris

    Life is short. Go boating now!

    Today we should get back to our home port, Penetang. It’s been almost 3 weeks.
