The Unofficial Report for June 3, 2017
It must have been about 6 months since I have been on the boat. My excuses: I have been traveling a lot, I am old and my parts are worn out.
Today was the best of days, my parts worked getting to, from and through the boat. Ski brought some wonderful apple crap that put some high test in my tank. Only five were aboard today but they were the best of shipmates; Dave, Frank, Bruce, Ski and of course myself the oldest of the lot.
The weather was the best and the interior of the ship was most pleasant. I spent my time polishing brass in the engine rooms after of course the usual gay banter and shared abuse over coffee in crews’ mess.
Bruce is half the man he used to be (weight loss, looks good). Ski decided hair was not the best look for him and now looks like Mr. Clean. Dave was jealous but I am thinking he will decide to remain as is. Frank looks like, well Frank. Perfection needs no alteration. I will be expecting a free beer for that comment.
The visitors were the most wonderful of humanity today. They asked relevant questions and were most respectful listening to our sea stories. We had bubble heads, regular Navy and Boston fans. All onboard were some of the nicest people we have ever encountered.
I am looking forward to a return and seeing more shipmates.
I should have taken some pictures of my shipmates and the wonderful interior of the boat but I was full of blue shit polish some of which I managed to get on my new 12 buck shirt.
However, I did take a few pictures of the Spanish Galleon and some new construction.
It was the best of days.

You can tell Tim hasn't been on board in a while when he uses sentences like this:

Look forward to your being on board more often!
