Just got off the phone with Tom, the station manager at KFSK Petersburg. I regretted doing it but I had to decline filling in for the regular host on the "Its Classic" program tonight. I did "High Country" on Tuesday afternoon as well as my regular Wednesday Street Beat "Island Music Program" this week. I have done the evening Classical Music program before but it takes a lot of time to put together a decent radio show and I was tired and was looking forward to going to bed early.
Gradually making progress on the boat. I had a diver clean the bottom and replace the zinc. Finally got the batteries replaced, with help from friend Eric. When it come to things like batteries, I like to get someone younger to do the heavy lifting. There is not much more I can do until we get down to Port Townsend Next summer. Major work on the rig, painting and interior joinery will have to wait.
Still, Lealea is not in such bad shape that we cannot take her out for a few days or even an offshore voyage. We are hoping to get away for a few days in September to shake the cobwebs out before the Winter sets in. In the Spring, we will begin preparing for the offshore trip to Port Townsend.
