So here is Chanty in her current home. I scrubbed her bottom after the Catalina. The Catalina was very bad, lots of barnacles leaving me with cuts and scrapes on my hands. Thank goodness I have a wet suit. It was covered in wiggly squirmy bugs by the time I was done. When I was out of the water for a bit, I could feel them wiggling in my hair. baa a a a...too bad I wasn't finished yet. Another time I took in a mouthful of the bug infested waters. That was really bad...I can just image them clinging on my intestine walls sucking my blood...I hope I don't die.
Any way, then went to finish up Chanty which was super easy compared to the Catalina with only a thin layer of grime and not barnacles yet. Then went to go take a very thorough shower.
Work has been great! I feel like a broken record but it is like heaven compared to Bronx-leb. I have no complaints.
What else? Oh yes, the first week of October my good friend Ursula and I are going to deliver the Catalina to Yarmouth, NS. This is sort of a half way point to Newfoundland where the new owner is. The new owner is Steve, who helped me the first few days of my trip from Newfoundland. Yarmouth happens to be the calculated point I can get to with the amount of time that I have. From there I leave her to Steve to take care of and say goodbye.
