Mary-Ann on the lowers
It's a little nippy as it's fall in New York and heading towards leaving time. We're off to the Caribbean again and Mary-Ann has decided to let me haul her up the stick. One hauls and the other gets the ride. It's a no-brainer. Take the ride. You also get a bucket with tools an' stuff to do the job. This time it's mounting the radar reflector on the shroud so anyone else with a radar can have a better shot at avoiding a 'collision at sea'. Not a pleasant happening by all accounts and well worth a little effort. It also helps sleeping at night and is almost as good as having another person on watch.
A free person at that.
