October 18-28, 2022 Marina life and family news

 10-18 I flew back to Brunswick today.
While I was gone, Dave figured out our freezer problem.  He replaced the “freon”, or whatever is being used these days, and it worked fine.  We don’t ever plan to totally shut it off in the future.  The solar panels keep it running while we are gone.  We will mostly empty the refrigerator and freezer anyway.  

Dave made a shade curtain for the stern of the boat that will zip into the same zippers for the isinglass curtains.

We still have a small water leak that ends up under our engine.  Dave decided to replace the engine water exhaust through hull.  It was rusted and a bolt had broken.  

10-19-22 My brother Don had surgery for a biopsy of his bladder.  Then he’ll find out what the treatment plan will be.
10-21 We had another nice women’s luncheon at the marina.

10-22 We had a mini Oktoberfest on our dock this evening.  We had a potluck German dinner.  There were actually 2 people on our dock that make their own sauerkraut.  Tasty.  
10-24 We cleaned our dinghy today.  We hung it on a halyard off the mast to access both sides.  We used a cleaner called Orange Off.  I’m sure it was an orange solvent that I was told was cancerous years ago.  We used gloves while scrubbing and it did a fanatic job.  

Afterwards, we mounted the outboard on the dinghy and went for a ride around the marina.  

The marina was having an employee appreciation evening on a power boat.  We happened to be passing them and took a few photos.


10-27 We had our monthly FaceTime chat tonight.  Don found out his cancer is very aggressive and he will have to have his bladder removed!!  He always has a good attitude.  If that’s what it takes, that’s what he’ll do.  
10-28 Dave spent the day cleaning the deck of the boat.  I cleaned the conch shells we had brought back with us.  Then we can put them in storage until I can decorate a house or home someday.  
We ended up having an impromptu happy hour on the top of our dock.  We had pizza delivered to share.  Fun dock mates.
