A productive day
I have to post before and after photo’s of my scrubbing job. I scraped my heart out and got every last creature off the dingy, then I took a scrub brush and tried to get sea weed growth and whatever that brown muck was that was glued to it off. I think it looks pretty good.
While I was doing that, Danny worked SO hard on the engines. He took things apart and cleaned them and fixed things that haven’t been fixed on this boat for quite some time. At one point he dropped one of his tools in the water by mistake. I grabbed a mask and dove down and found it. Since I was already in, I took a scrub brush and scrubbed Tanda Malaika’s starboard hull. I made a couple of friends down there – both Jacks. They stayed close to my hands, and when I scrubbed they would eat particles that I had broken free. I dove deeper and scrubbed the keel and they followed and stayed close to me.
This evening Danny and I sat out on the back deck and ate dinner, enjoying the quiet of the marina.
We love our new home.
Right now Steve is over and he and Danny are practicing on their guitars. Tomorrow night they will be singing and playing at a restaurant close by. They sound SO SO good together!

WOW, what a difference! I wonder how often you’ll have to scrub that dingy? Of course, you’ll soon have all the tribe there to help. Love, Mama G

I think if we give it a good scrub once a month, it’ll keep it from being a big job like it was today. The creatures will have an entirely different chore chart here 🙂
