Sorry for the poor quality, the Adm. was drinking. The chair is quite comforable releaving the Captain from the arduous and physically demand task of standing while driving. Of course, AUTO PILOT is a great feature, better than cruise control.
The fly bridge is enclosed with ison glass and canvas, which made the day comfortable at 52 degrees on the exterior. The enclosed bridge will be our home during the cruising hours of the upcoming Spring Pirate Cruise.
I have a number of boat projects for this summer but my new "pirates" have do complete some deckhand work along the cruise. Afterall, no good trip goes unpunished. We have an abundance of teak on the interior which needs oiling each season. Therefore, my pirates will be handed teak oil with rags, one to oil the other to wipe. Not a difficult job but a little time consuming. Afterall, each day cruise will be 8-10 hrs. and 2-3 hrs. will be needed to rub teak.
Of courese, I have not discussed this with the crew, for they have no choice in the matter. "Trust Me, I am the Captain"!
The above sign was found at our local, famous BBQ joint, Koth's BBQ. They do serve excellent pig and always with a smile. The wall is covered with these pearls of wisdom. I would appreciate the above opportunity if any reader would like to provide the funds. After all, cruising is no free and requires a $$ committment.
Well, must end this blog post. Planning the cruise on the Tennessee and will be posting to the Captain's Log each day.
Fair winds, following seas and good drink
