So, one of the most difficult "boat projects" for us (Scott) to complete has been the on going leaking of our port lights (windows).
Scott has spent hours & hours of research & labor trying to correct this problem. We think he has finally discovered how to seal our port lights up .... On Friday, Scott spent 12 hours taking each & every port light out, scraping all the puddy & adhesive, then applying a new bedding material he researched on line. So far, so good. We sprayed the window directly with the water hose & it also rained, & I think...he has finally conquered the battle of the port lights. HUGE accomplishment. What a great day!

|Good end to a long day of boat projects. Notice the bike in the lower right hand corner..belongs to our friend Ethan & is parked in front of his boat.|
|Scott & Jib fishing next to Malaika. Notice how we are the last boat on the dock.....|
The next morning we wake to find that we have all been robbed!!! Someone came onto the dock in the dark of the night & stole 4 fishing rods & Ethan's bike. We are convinced they snuck up by boat...docked next to Malaika & made off with what they could in less than 30 seconds. He only went up the dock 3 boats passed Malaika.
GRRRRRR!!!!!! We are all so angry! We really do feel so violated!! I mean, really?!!! Fishing poles & a bike? We did call the police & file reports but obviously,

The guys on the dock were pretty fired up about it. There was talk of a stake out...but they just went to bed instead.
Love & Miss everybody!!
