    Clearwater Muni Marina

    Clearwater Muni Marina

    As promised, I was there at 1000 hrs ready to help take Nanita to her new home in Clearwater.  The Pelican poo on the dock was horrendous and the place on our pier head wreaked of the stuff.  On arrival at the boat I found the stuff tracked everywhere.  The Captain mounted a valiant effort to clean up – to my benefit – and soon the richly sweet smell of Pelican poo was a distant memory.  However, it clung to the decks and cabin sole like glue but the stuff was cleaned up by the time we cleared Boca Ciega at the Gulf pass. What a beautiful day it was as we passed St. Petersburg Beach, Treasure Island, St. John’s Pass, Indian Rocks, et.al. on the way to Clearwater Muni.  I spent a good deal of this calm time to right all the bogus pages and settings previously made while other people made attempts to learn the system.  I think it was finally ok and I did it without resorting to factory defaults.  I was a little ticked that someone other than the captain made these changes to fundamental system system settings but all turned out well.

Thanks to all that made this possible.
