Is it purposely at right angles or did you notice it after waking up outside a bar?

Just kidding.... I'm sure you are better than that after seeing your resume' of training...I know I got my best practice leaving bars in places I've been to some kind of training...

I wish it was due to a spot or two of rum.

And you have photographic evidence to prove your phone is a rummy...

I'd enjoy reading about your trip down to P.R. would you mind posting some updates from time to time on the voyagers section of the forum?
thanks

Sure. But not much to tell. It was a uneventful straight delivery. Other than issues with the Tides shaft seals at the start, we went Ft. Lauderdale to Nassau just for fuel, then straight from Nassau to Palmas del Mar on the East coast of PR. The boat goes to St. Martin tomorrow but I have to get off here in PR. It's an 87' Johnson we were cruising at 9.5 - 11.5 knots burning between 30 - 40 GPH. And we had perfect weather most of the way.

A feeble attempt at increasing its surface area to provide better holding in muddy conditions

Hopkins Carter sticker, huh? Just another indication of how desperate things are getting in the islands!

As many shipments as Parks has to the Islands, he ought to have his own Air Freight division.
