Now here arises an issue. In fresh water boater don't have to worry so much about corrosion and growth on their hulls. Its a whole other case in salt water. Things grow quickly and props are destroyed. So you can get you boat hulled out and cleaned, hire "Barnacle Bill" to use his equipment underwater as he is hooked to an O2 tank, or jump over boat void off the scary blue fish and do it yourself.
I was thinking of doing option #2, but i was one-upped by one of my boat neighbors "Ducky." He must be about 70-80 years old. He did option #3. If he could do it and not get attcked...I can do it. I donned on snorkel and fins (so my toes wouldn't get bit off) and went to work. It was a dirty job and ended up with a lot of green on my body. I had no encounters with any "blue Fish" or any fish for that matter. All in all it was an good experience and will do it again to preserve my outboard motor.
I finally decided to get an air conditioner for the boat. It is just not possible to get adequate amount of sleep during the day in 90 degree weather. It works but of coarse i haven't needed it yet. But no i am prepared for the heat when it attacks again.
This past Friday I took the afternoon to go the the Bronx Botanical Garden. The weather was perfect, and the flowers and plants were quite phenomenal. They had this huge pond with enormous lily pads. I also enjoyed the huge rose garden. Since it was a long walk to get there, i was able to have most of it to myself and shoot some good pictures undisturbed. So work so far has been pretty good. I am still amazed at the amount of travelers at this hospital. This has a lot of staffing problems. It is not uncommon for about 4 nurses in our unit to just not show. This is their own staff not the travelers. Since they are hard for staff anyway they really are not in a place to fire these non compliant nurses.
