11/1/18 BACK AT HOME BUT WITHOUT LUNASEA we hit a submerged log on the way out and bent a prop. I am number 8 to be hauled out, after I am out 10 days turn around for props to be worked. Tuesday the Aqua Harbor repair shop brought 6 sets of props to be repaired. I asked if this was normal and they said not this many but the water level is about a foot to a foot and a half lower than normal and many more logs than normal. Car rentals is at a premium in Pickwick everyone leaving their boats there for repair and going home for the holidays. I am sure there will be a mad rush back after Thanksgiving.
I have learned to have much admiration for loopers. More on that later
