Water Intensive Weekend
Saturday: The day of the test is here. I have to go out on the boat and demonstrate I am not some sort of idiot. People will be watching and taking notes, evaluating how I do. If I screw up - I fail. If I do not screw up I pass. And that is all there is to it.
If I fail nothing really happens, I just get to do it all over again later.
Sunday: The plan is to just go out. No testing involved. There may even be beer in the cooler. I am thinking that the ODOTD (official drink of the day) shall be ......
A nice refreshing summer drink, composed of beer (Blue Moon is a good choice) mixed to taste with lemonade - usually 50/50. But you can really vary the proportions as you see fit.
Orders for the day include meeting one passenger at the boat club, then heading off to cruise around a bit. Then later pick up another passenger at some other location. Or maybe pick up both at the same time and location. Or whatever.
My idea - which may be over ruled, is to leave early but not too early. 10ish is good. Then cruising out to a party spot to commence hanging out.
As the sun creeps up, and it gets hotter and hotter - it will be a good time to seek a place to hide. So by 11:30 be docked somewhere for lunch. Hang out there (where there is a lot of shade) until around 2 or so (or till everyone wants to go) then cruise another party spot.
Then be back at the docks by whenever. Probably not much later than 5 PM.
Being able to leave the boat in the water really does make things so darn much easier.
