Greetings, avid readers! It's been a while since I posted to the blog.
So what's new? Nothing much. We've suffered from one of the coldest Julys on record, second coldest since 1884. It's been damp, so much so that the varnish work on the speed boat has suffered. It's still not on the water. We're hoping today! Or maybe tomorrow at the latest. We'd like to buzz up to Vitale Park here on Conesus lake for the Sunday evening concert.
Here's the boat sitting rather forlorn and lonely in the car port. The varnish has ended up being a non-slip surface. Some of it turned to alligator skin due to the moisture. Oh well, this fall (autumn) we'll tackle it properly. A little history about the boat, it's a 1961 Cruisers Inc. It's been in Gail's family since new, and was restored by sister in law Jen and her husband Robert. 90 hp Mercury engine! Somewhat of a collector's item.
So I'll pop some photographs of the boat on the water this weekend.
