Well we had two boats to undock today, which was quite a bit of fun. Well I found it fun anyway. I got to talk on the radio and climb on things and do various other sailor-y things which served to validate my identity, and yes, my very existence.
Tomorrow we've got at least one little job to do, so that'll be good. This recent spate of boats to move is a result of all the various drydocks needing to cycle all at the same time. A couple of our favorite drydocks have been occupied for quite a long time, one since October if I remember correctly, so it's nice to see them moving again.
We only make money when the boats are going in and out of the dock, so in an ideal world, from our standpoint, all these boats would just be coming in for a quick little two or three day job and then leaving again. When one of them gets parked in the drydock for months on end it doesn't do us any good at all. Oh well, it's just the luck of the draw I guess. Maybe we're due for a bunch of quick turnarounds!
