Brownie, the sailor dog, is recovering from a vet visit. Nothing serious. It was elective surgery as we don't want to deal with puppies. Our little lady dog is doing fine. We are keeping her quiet.
I used the down time to fix a telescoping boat hook. We bent the fat end of it during one of our early trips in the Gulf. The motor failed and the pole got wedged between the boat and the bottom as we grounded. Something had to give.
It was a simple matter of shortening the pole a bit. No problem really, as it was a bit too long for our boat to begin with. Live and learn. I'm taking advantage of having my dad's shop at my disposal. Repairs can be made with rivets instead of duct tape -a much more permanent solution.
Taking it easy and enjoying the warm weather.
