Emerald Bay Marina, Great Exuma, Southern Exumas, Bahamas, Part 2

 

Mar 23-Apr 7

While Mark was in Colorado, Angie washed and waxed parts of Uno Mas. Since we were dockside, she was able to sit/hang off the dock and wash, buff, and wax the port hull.

Since the computer was kaputz, she also read 6 books from the marina library and worked some boat interior crafty things.  Namely, the shell, coral, and sea glass rimmed mirrors for the master head.

She also made a sunbrella cover for the boat bell.  Trying to conserve the power, she tried not to run the inverter unless making water.  Between the hand cranking on the sewing machine and the wax on/ wax off, you would think Angie would have some serious “guns” after going to bed exhausted and sore every night.  Also, since the full size machine laundry facility was available, all of the boat comforters, blankets, and big towels are now clean and fluffy.

Since Angie is working on being sociable, she actually went to the Monday night event and made small talk and met some interesting people.  She also decided to go find the people on the little red monohull that pulled in on the dock.  This red boat followed us down most of the Abacos.  The guy would go out kite surfing and the girl would paddleboard around the mangroves but we never officially met up.  Well, thank goodness Angie didn’t find them.  We found out from other boaters that the boyfriend was kite surfing in Eleuthera and got knocked out and eaten by a shark a month ago.  Now THAT conversation would have been awkward.
