The geese are forming up in Vs to leave, the osprey should show up on the Bay any day now and I, like them, am getting a bad case of the Spring Fever!
The boat yard will be crazy with activity as all of we boat-nuts take the winter covers off and begin this season’s projects. For us that is a pretty major deck job that will be taking place beginning later this month.
We plan to have the project completed by the middle of April so we are calling the 25th the big opening of 2014!
Stop by and offer encouragement at the boat yard or join us for the maiden sail of the year. Either way we look forward to seeing you…Cheers!
