PERFECT?

I guess everything is as good as it gets at the Florida Sea Base right now.  But nothing is perfect.  We have lost a few staff members, but we have reinforcements on the way; that’s normal.  We are experiencing occasional rain showers, and that too is normal.  Some of the staff members are starting to realize that working in paradise is a job, not a vacation; also normal.  I guess everything is normal.  I’m okay with that.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Captain Bruce Payette, owner/operator of S/V Barefoot and owner of S/V ComfortZone II, is celebrating his birthday today.  I am horrible with dates, but I think Captain Bruce joined the Florida Sea Base fleet in 2006.

WEATHER

We have a 40% chance of showers daily through Saturday night.  Our daily lows should be 81°F with afternoon highs of 89°F.  The wind will generally be out of the SE at 10-15 knots.

SCHOONER SIENNA BELLE

I did not receive an update from Captain Rich yesterday.  They will likely be in cell phone range sometime today.  As a matter of fact, they may make it to River Dunes before the day is over.  I will confirm that in tomorrow’s post.
