Progress is being made. I stopped by this afternoon to check out the status and wound up being pulled into the effort. The Yard people were unable to remove and replace the fridge at the current dock so they had me move the boat over to the haulout berth. Took a few minutes to untie and move from the dock, muscle the Barco about to the right and move about 25 feet. What makes all this interesting is that the space between piers is about 50 feet and the Barco is 40 feet long. That means nerves of steel as we back up, stop, twist to the right, all while the current is merrily pushing to the east.
I looked adequate as a boat handler. Had I not appeared, the yard crew was going to use lines to warp the boat around. My way saved about an hours work.

|Had to remove the side access to increase the clearance.|
|Looks like four monkeys doing something unnatural to a football!|
|Without a scratch or dent!|
Great way to spend an afternoon in the Florida sunshine, at a working marina!
Have a wonderful Friday evening!
