March 18 - 29, 2018 Philips retirement


retirement party for Philip
at AYS 


Philip on the left started to work at Abaco Yacht Services when
he was 14 years old  and now 45 years later he is
retiring and moving to Florida to be with his family




the travel lift  of AYS on Green Turtle Cay


the party was held in the cottage that is rented out to cruisers, when they are
getting their boat ready to  launch or haul .. we usually stay on the boat for those few days
our friends on Wingspread use this facility each year


it looks like another hot sunny day in the Abacoes


Joe catching up with Old Sam

since Joe has been in Black Sound, he has varnished all the wood work
in and outside the boat … plus put 2 coats of wax on the hull, added some teak
trim to the companionway, washed down the inside of the boat with vinegar,
entertained cruisers and was entertained by cruisers, walked beaches, 
bought groceries, did laundry (there is a shortage of water on GTC so it is
very hard to find a place that will let you wash laundry),
and more things that Im not aware of  ….

Joe is not a picture taker like me .. lol .. so it is hard to get
any pictures from him
Joe returned home April 19, but he has a lot more work to do
before that with getting Modaki ready for haul out and summer storage

right now March 30 he is sailing up to Powell Cay for a few days, about a 5 hour trip
and he will be joined there with Wingspread, SandysWay, Almost Heaven and many more
boats
