The problem will come next week. As per schedule, our plan is to be home for a couple of weeks. Doctor visits, dental visits, birthdays and grandchildren. The boat will be on it's own. I don't want any leaks. Remember, last time we did this, the boat sank. I do not need a repeat of that fiasco. Not to mention Carol will probably put an end to this project if we sink another one. So today I replaced the shower stall port instead of going with another boat at the dock to Cape Lookout, which is what I really wanted to do. I will take a look at the salon hatch tomorrow to see what can be done.
I also declined an invitation to go with a different boat to Oakracoke, for the second time in as many weeks. This "responsible" gig is getting old.
I do find myself looking forward to seeing family. We will be home for two or three weeks, and need to settle some things. We will then come back and spend some more time possibly here in Oriental and then start the migration south near the end of hurricane season.
