Bob and I are doing a 2 day work week of 2 days working on the boat and 6 days off. This week, we have disconnected the macerator pump and attached the new one. For non-boaters, the macerator is like a boat Cuissinart for sewage that then gets discharged into the ocean, at least 3 miles off shore. We have never used one as they are illegal on the Great Lakes but the Bahamas do not have many pump-out facililities so this is necessary. Notice the photo of Bob complete with Kleenex nose plugs—it worked and got a dirty job done.
Thursday was not all work and no play as we met Tom and Debbie from “Catrina” for dinner at Key Fisheries. They are staying on a mooring ball in Boot Key and we had a great time catching up with them. Key Fisheries has a great menu, is reasonably priced and has great outside seating. We biked there from our marina—check out our really cool “headlamp” gear for night time travel. Are we really cool or what? It completes the whole ensemble of zip-off plastic pants and fanny packs. Our mission now is to embarass our kids--did we succeed Katie and Brian?
