Dodger work means we’re dodging fun
When I mentioned yesterday that the proprietor of the sail loft we had visited in St. Martin wasn’t interested in taking on the job of replacing the plastic in our dodger, it is obvious why. He probably knew that the job would be so time consuming that we wouldn’t be willing to pay for it to be done. I base this assumption on the fact that, by the time that it has been completed, Rebecca and Donna will have invested a full two working days on the repair/install. What a great job they have done though… the revitalized dodger looks awesome. I had forgotten what it is like to be able to look forward through the dodger and actually see something. What a concept!
We can now see through the dodger. Imagine that!
Other than work, what else have we been doing here in Jost Van Dyke? Not much. We did go ashore to have lunch at Corsairs, our favorite restaurant here. Kirk also gave me a lesson in diesel engine and saildrive maintenance, something that might come in handy down the road.
This pic was for our friend Carl at Coastlines and Tan Lines as that is his hat at the top of the photo.
Kirk was explaining to me some of the engine issues that he has had to contend with.
What’s next for us, and our friends? Hopefully something involving a little less work and a little more fun!
