Piracy In Florida

We were awakened last night by a crash on deck. I grabbed my weather gear">foul weather gear and Heather stood by. Looking out on deck, we were being boarded!!!
3am and an uninvited visitor on deck...not what we envisioned.
Making decisions on the fly can be rough...your judgement isn't always the best. Maybe I should have taken a second glance before I hit him upside the head with our nicawompa...but I split his skull pretty good.
It was only when he hit the deck and I noticed it was a fat man with white beard... a rum & coke perked him right up, but...

Your presents may be late...

But on the upside, with a roller furling unit for Christmas at least we get to unwrap it all year long...

Brian,
I am spending the Christmas holiday with Capt'n Vern aboard the fabulous S/V Chiqui II, in Boot Key Harbor. We were both looking forward to a plentiful visit from Santa, and .......... Nothing!!!! Now we know why, obviously all your fault!!!!
