Look what came home!
The old rowboat, or dinghy if you will. Just two days ago this little guy was at the bottom of the harbor/ocean, glug-glug-a-glug. Drowned. A goner. Sleeping with the fishes.
… here it is at home again. Safe and not-quite-so-sound but in one piece, sort of. As you can see, it needs some surgery/repairs done but we think, in time, it will be functional again.
However, it is not to be the main dinghy again. Paul is having a new fiberglass dinghy built by his cousin, who runs a boatyard and builds boats, and that one will move up into the lead role as Head Dinghy when it’s built. At that time, this dinghy will become First Spare Dinghy and the one he is using now, the one he got on CraigsList, will become Second Spare Dinghy.
Never before, in the history of this lobster operation, have there been two spare dinghys (or is it “dinghies”?). So we are feeling rich in dinghys at the moment.
Nothing much new to report other than this. I’m waiting for the President to come out for his news conference – oh here he is now… see you all later.
