Before continuing north, we made a stop in Jacksonville for a bottom job and a few other out of water fixes. After a quick run up the St John River and a few nights at our floating home in Ortega Landing Marina, we were hauled out at Lambs Yachting Center by Richard. Here we sit on the gravel while the rains delay the painting although Steve continues to work on his fixes. We have a new door lock, flopper stopper for swells at anchor, and new packing around the prop… Inside new fabric is on order for some refreshed cushion covers to be sewn as power and space permit.
Our kind hosts at Lambs have lent us a portable AC unit to keep the main cabin cool enough for sleeping since the high humidity and temps do not make this the ideal time to sit in the yard. On the water there is most often a breeze which moderates the temps and we can always use our boat’s AC.
Lambs also have new bathroom facilities and even provide us the use of car. Our Ortega home is just next door with our other floating friends. We joined a group at Moon River Pizza on Wednesday for cruising news and great pizza.
One of these days we will be back in the water and on our way north….
