If you didn’t think I wasn’t gonna milk this drama for all its worth, you have not been reading WoodyBoater for a while. It’s 4 Am and I am doing this story so I can get back to her to help finish up. Her bottom needs a coat of anti fouling paint. And her boot stripe refreshed and Bam. Done. Amazing.
She got some new oak, copper and some of her little leaky areas fixed in two days. I also was able to paint her hull with some Kirby Paint, and take advantage of being on the rails for a brief moment.
A HUGE GIANT SHOUT OUT TO OUR SPECIAL COMMUNITY HERE IN REEDVILLE. One thing is for sure, they read Facebook and the news network moves fast in a small town. We had a constant stream of friends and neighbors come by the Railway to offer help, advice and keep us laughing. It is actually quite moving to feel a part of a community of caring people.
Many have reached out to the Coast Guard, Congressmen to fix the rock situation. And Frank and George have been cranking big time. It’s very impressive and like watching a museum in action. Although I don’t recommend such a dangerous action as running up on some rocks. I feel lucky to have had this experience.
Now if you will excuse me, I need to go work on some paint, and get her back home to her dock.
