Summer in Baltimore - 2017
Jun 21 thru Jun 25
|Tim's neighbor, Wilson, can be seen waving from behind |
the fence that separated their homes on the TV set.
|The used Fortress anchor came without mud palms but I was|
able to buy them too at Bacon's. The mud palms (clean
silver-colored plates) assist the anchor in digging
into soft mud sea bottoms like we typically
find in the Chesapeake Bay and ICW.
The change in secondary anchor was primarily to save weight.
Today, Thursday, June 22, we pulled the boat's bow over against the finger pier and removed all 225-feet of chain from the chain locker to inspect it. Once all the chain was out on the dock, Maggie re-painted the markers with bright yellow (Rustoleum-brand) paint.
|I replaced the old Harken-brand cam |
cleat with a new one.
|At the end of the day, there was still a small section of the |
old stanchion still fused to the stanchion base.
