Saturday Evening Post July 16. Mad dog.

Written by Jack van Ommen on July 16th, 2011

When I looked at my watch it was almost 2 p.m. and I had not taken a break. In over a 100 degrees Fahrenheit that qualifies me for a Mad Dog, according to Rudyard Kipling, since I am certainly not an Englishman.

Boiko’s brother had stopped by earlier to warn me that this would be a very hot day and to wear my cap and take frequent showers. I sanded the teak trim on top of the house before I re-install the boom and lead the halyards back. I also had a nasty “auweey” on the starboard foward hull that needed sanding down to the bare wood and be epoxy patched. That happened in “Z” town during the launch. I am not happy with the hull finish, it never got hard. And it already has quite a few scratches/bruises. So, next time back to a two part poly urtehane or epoxy paint. But it is very easy to patch, since it is one part. I should have been at anchor on the river this morning to get a better view of the full moon set.

Tomorrow I’ll be attending 10 a.m. mass at the R.C. church with the Italian priest.

Details of the "Profit Yielding" building. Does a soldier "yield profit???"
