Year 2, Week 6: Hampton Layover

Started: Hampton City Marina 37°01.48′N 076°20.44′W

Anchored: Hampton River 37°01.38′N 076°20.45′W

We moved about 150 yards from dock into the river.

Today's agenda:

  • American Diesel Parts Order.

  • Bank.

  • Maybe take a bus ride to West Marine.

I'd like to exchange the ¾" hose barb fitting for an adapter from ¾" threaded to 1" hose barb. And get some CRC 3-36 spray lube. Highly recommended as superior to WD-40. And a new headlamp. And some antifreeze and oil.

The bus transit center is at King and Pembroke. The route 114 bus goes to West Marine. It leaves the transit center at :20 and :50 between 6AM and 11PM. Interestingly, it leaves the Peninsula Town Center headed downtown at :20 and :50, also.

Mostly, we're busy waiting for the parts to arrive.

That means trying to learn how to make wall knots, crown knots and Matthew Walker knots to put a stopper in a bit of three-strand line that's falling apart.

The book shows a complex knot that's usually tied in four-strand line. Four strand? Really?

Monday Night Football at Marker 20. Only the first half; I just can't stay up that late anymore.
