Bringing the Sea Star home from FL to LA

We didnít get going as early as we had hoped so didnít get very far today. We are docked at the south seas resort for the night on Captiva Island.
The boat ran perfectly.
My only complaint as the one who has to deal with the lines is that the lines that came with the boat suck! They are thick and very stiff. Took me forever to get one around a cleat. I knew I should have packed some of the brand new lunes we have at the house.

We are on the beach enjoying a cocktail. Life is good.

Glad the boat is running well. Lines are not a big deal so if that is the worst thing to have happen, then you are doing great.

Put your lines in a mesh dive bag and wash them with a ton of fabric softener. It gets the built up salt out and softens the fibers during the tumbling.

I have my screen sideways on my desk! :)

5 gallon bucket, fresh water and a lot of fabric softener, soak a line as you travel between ports. By the time you get to 4 ports, you have all the lines soaked and flexible again.

Did I say that our boat looks like a red headed stepchild compared to these monster yachts here? Cause it does. Lol

Don't forget to turn on the sump pumps or you will have a very smelly bilge!

I like sideways too. But...

When I take cell phone pics I email them to myself and then save them to the desktop of my computer. Then I right click on the photo and choose edit with photos. Then I click crop and rotate. Then I do a 5 or 6 rotations until the picture is the correct orientation. Then done and save. Picture is still on desktop and ready browsed and selected to go into your TF post.

And we figured out the showers. The knobs move up and down. Who knew. We were just turning them. Lol
