I even asked a guy if he had a shoe-horn as we squeezed past his boat...
Well thanks to new friends, Jesse and Shanna (friends of Doug and Carla on "Moondance") we were able to find a slip
We still need to work on the refer system.
We still need to change the oil in the engines.
We still need to visit a few people.
And we still need to figure out where to next.
Slips are hard to find here and when you find them they are kind of expensive.
So, we were lucky enough to get in to the small Koehler Kraft (look them up - beautiful wooden boat builder) Boatyard Marina.
And lucky enough to have Jesse offer to go with us to help park.
And lucky enough to have John Howard here visiting to go with us to park!
First we had to back down one fairway, turn 90 degrees to port, back down another very narrow fairway with boats sidetied to each side, then turn 90 degrees to starboard and back down a small channel with 1-2' on each side, then squeeze between Jesse's anchor and another boat and not hit anything including the boat behind us.
Ummm... pictures would show this better.
Jim did an awesome job!
Impressed the boatyard workers.
Probably impressed John Howard and Jesse.
We are thinking we will head out when Jesse and Shanna are at Catalina Island this weekend...
One less boat to hit.
