This morning there were four (Four!) buy-boats in Solomon's. I guess it was the buy-boat convention.
We've seen the F. D. Crockett, which is based in Deltaville.
Here's the Muriel Eileen, which we saw this morning.
There was the Thomas J and two more that I didn't get pictures of. This was a mountain of Chesapeake Bay History in one place.
Back before the roads connected the waterfront towns, the way you bought and sold your goods was via the buy-boats.
Light air day, again. We motor-sailed up the bay. Still able to make extremely good speed with our new paint. Still a kind of Wow!
There seems to be a little weirdness with our alternator cutting in and out. I'm going to tighten the belt, since that's the most common cause of alternator weirdness. The belt is well over a year old and hasn't been tensioned in quite a while.
We're at the West River Sailing Club for the Whitby Rendezvous. Meeting folks we haven't seen in quite a while. Some folks we haven't seen since the last rendezvous. Other folks we saw a few days ago in Deltaville. Others we saw last in Saint Augustine.
