Random Checkup

I had some errands to run downtown, so I went to check on the ship since the weather’s been rather blustery.

The tide was on the high side:

Compare the above photo to the one from the 5th.

The aft draft mark pole continues to be a problem. On Saturday, I noticed that its lower part had come loose and that it was hanging at an odd angle. I forgot to take a photo then, so I took one today:

I was looking at Namahoe. Something seemed wrong. After a while, I realized she doesn’t have the K-Sea paint scheme anymore.

The Kulamanu (ex-Rella Mae) is starting to look bad:


Thought I’d better take a photo of the HMC sign before it disappears:

    I’d say ‘hang a dive weight on it’ but that adds another layer of complexity that you probably don’t need… As always, thanks for sharing your photos and dilemmas. There are people sending positive thoughts your way even if you don’t know it.

    Thanks, Buck. We thought the weight of the pole itself would be enough, but it seems not. We may have to use weights, as you suggest.
