Days 48-50 - Anacortes WA - Sunday-Tuesday, June 26-28, 2011
Herb and Bob watch the paint dry at North Island Boat, as we prepare to splash "Willie's Tug" for her short journey home to Cap Sante Marina.
The bottom paint will protect her from the uglies both in the water at marinas and will not degrade on the trailering trip to her new home in Port Isabel.
The fork lift tows her across the street to the sling launch to be set into the water once again.
We get a smooth launch, and as the operator connects the straps under the boat, Herb asks him with a grin, "Have you ever dropped one?" He laughed as he replied, "Not yet............"
So far, so good, and we head around the northwest point of Fidalgo Island back to Cap Sante to the East.
The water today is like glass! I like that!
As we near the marina entrance, all is calm regarding traffic and water, and we admire a really big sailboat -- big in my eyes! So pretty and I wonder about her story.
Willie of Willie's Tug,
and Walldog, Willie and Jake
