We arrived back at St. Maarten on August 9. We were thrilled to welcome our son, Chase, to the island for his own new adventure. A certified dive instructor, Chase will be teaching and certifying tourists as well as locals.
With Ken becoming healthier by the day, we are now set to begin our work on Slow Dancer. Our “new” boat was now 11 years old. The magic number for boats before needing upgrades seems to be around 10 years. It was time.
One thing that had to be done is to have the mast removed for hurricane season and placed on a “mast rack” to protect it as well as the boats in the yard. While it is down, our plan is to replace the sails as well as the wiring that is in the mast.
We have taken a little time to enjoy our surroundings as well!
