Vlog #5 Taking stock

Well, what’s the point of having a boat if you know nothing of her provisioning? Huh? Eh? I’ll tell you what – nothing.

So, let me introduce you to my hale and hearty if a little weird crew:  Dread Pirate Vlad.

Why Vlad? Well ladies, you Twilight fans, Vlad is from Transylvania (really!).  I take no chances with Vampires let me tell you. I mean check this out:

Yes, beers were drunk, rum was consumed, good times were had. The weather was West Coast typical – raining and cold. In fact the rain was coming down sideways. The ol’ boat was bouncing up and down in her slip. Seemed like she wanted to escape to sea!! One day my pretty, one day.

In spite of the weather and spirits we did do a comprehensive inventory of the boat. There were some surprises, some mysteries, and some WT…?? items. But at the end of the weekend we had a very good idea of our bill of lading.

A good time was had. Now to move her to a moorage closer to home!
