No ranting today, looks like Kerry had a day about the same as mine, she was on a major rant too on her blog!! (www.saildivebvi.com/serendipity)
So whats been happening in the world of Promenade? We have had some boats come join us on the dock, they have been here for a while, its nice to have some one to say good morning too. One guy Martin, a nice German fellow, who has bought a boat as a fixer upper, has been seeking some help from Richie with matters of batteries, alternators and stuff that has been blown up. The main problem Rich discovered was he had to plug the battery charger in for it to work and charge the batteries! Another kind gent who came to help him with this matter the other day, hard wired his shore power into a circuit board and blew up his brand new 6 speaker surround sound DVD player! For Richies troubles I got a nice bottle of wine, seems like a good deal to me!
I have been painting, in the crew head, which is all shiny now
The kitchen, which is a work in progress and tricky due to the need to feed ourselves, I banned Rich from the kitchen yesterday and he took me out for dinner, especially after what he had had his hands in all day, didnâ€™t fancy those hands making me a meal!! A bonus though is now the toilets suck the air out the room they are so powerful!
The last few grates for showers are being varnished, one being the crew one, which always gets especially grotty due to the amount of traffic it gets, so its having several layers applied and is another work in progressâ€¦..
Rich hasnâ€™t taken to sarongs, heâ€™s soggy as heâ€™s been diving! I think an excuse to test his new toy out, his ultra sparkly, ice diving, can go to minus who knows what reg! The fact he bought this scares me a bit as I donâ€™t know where he is planning on needing it, especially as I didnâ€™t get one! Is he off on his own to dive the Antarctic?? Today, he got to dive on our old mooring in Road Town, we are on our way to St Thomas, only got this far as we thought it would be a good chance to check it out, as Bazza hasnâ€™t had the boat on the mooring all year. Good job we did as it needed a bit of a tweak, some of the links on the chain had corroded to half there original size, there is all manner of things living on the line and chain as it hasnâ€™t been out the water for so long! Funny being back on the mooring, lovely breeze and the Peter Island ferry wobble!
Went to Pussers for dinner last night to try out the new one in East End, purely for research for guests! I was so happy as they had a floating in the sea Christmas tree all lit up! Didnâ€™t have the camera so will endeavor to go back to get a picture! We also got our first Christmas card from Richies Dad Jim, thanks Dad xxx
