Is it time to boat again already??? Feels like I was just writing these blogs and feeling melancholy over the coming winter…. Alas, Spring has sprung (more like summer) and here we go! With the weather report claiming temps in the 80’s, Cap’t Buddy was all over getting down to the boat to assess winter’s harm. Dirty on the outside, a little dusty on the inside, but otherwise, so far so good. A quick once over, and we were wanting more. It was time to get those engines fired up and see what the old gal could do. A phone call to a couple of friends, and we had ourselves a shakedown cruise ‘n crew.
The HarborShark performed stupendously. She ran great – no smoke out this year, thanks to a little pre-season maintenance, and with the exception of a loose radio wire, all systems were a go. The skies were blue, the temps up, the harbor crowded – one would think it was the middle of summer. We even had the pleasure of our summertime boating friends, which made the illusion that much more convincing.
