Our Last Day in Boynton Beach

It's Wednesday Jan. 11, 2012 and this is our last day at Boynton Beach. Monday was our arrival, Tuesday we had workers on the boat and we would like to have left today but the weather is a bit unsettled, fairly sustained winds of 8 to 12 miles per hour with gusts hitting the 15 mark with a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Those are not terrible winds but as our next stop is our first anchorage we decided to err on the side of caution and hang out here one more day. We added a second bow line to the dock as the winds were coming straight up our bow from the south as we are docked...a little rocky but not too bad. I am pleased with the small maintenance work that was done by Jim and Charlie yesterday. Again nothing too major but things set at a point that I want them.

Yesterday we did take a very pleasant day trip back down to Delray Beach Municipal arena to do a pump out. Make a note...if you're cruising this area and need a pump out go to that marina. Coin operated and only $2.00. A bargain at any price. The dockmaster here at Boynton, Les, told us that the next pump out station north of Boynton Beach is the hoighty toighty Palm Beach Yacht Marina. Les says that they don't like to do pump outs so they tell people that it's broken.

We have used today to finish up some chores. Lisa has been on her computer finishing up some work. I started and finished the inventory of everything left in the engine compartment. We are very well stocked left over from the previous owner. And we are up to our eyeballs in spray lubricants like WD40 and vinyl protectorants similar to Armor All. There also is an ample supply of filters for the engine and the generator. Nice.

What's left for today? As soon as I finish this entry I am going to top off the water supply, Lisa will finish up her work and we'll have a run through on anchoring.

There is a pumpout at the fuel dock at the Riviera Beach Marina in Lake worth just north of the "hoity-toitp" Palm Beach marinas. It is on the west bank just behind Peanut Island. We,ve stayed at Sailfish Marina just acrost the lake several times.
