We are covered!
Boat insurance? Check. Our policy was issued today by McMichael-Davis Marine Insurance and I paid the premium online. There was no way I wanted to get to Toronto to pick up our boat and not have the insurance in place.
Yesterday I went to the bank and had all of the required funds for the boat converted into US dollars. I then immediately returned to my office and deleted the bookmark for the online exchange rate conversion website. I promise that I will not be looking at exchange rates again for at least the next 6 months! If you are reading this and find out that the Canadian to US rate does improve in the short term, please don’t tell me unless you are interested in seeing me cry!
One of the things that Rebecca and I have not been practicing lately is our knot tying. Since we will be out on the water in a few days and may be called upon to tie some knots I figured we had better do some review. Here is a list of what we were working on:
- Clove Hitch
- Round Turn and Two Half Hitches
- Rolling Hitch
- Figure of 8 Knot
- Stopper Knot
- Cleat Hitch
