Re: Surrounded By Water and No Experience - St. Pete

I'm not going to start a new thread about every day I spend around boats, but had fun today.

After checking out the grand opening of the West Marine Flagship store a few blocks away, I got to learn how to step a mast on a smaller boat in Gulfport.

Then I got to help launch it in the water for the first time (for this owner).

Then I got to help get it back out of the water and unstep the mast after minor, but still major issue was discovered.

Learned a lot, and met a bunch of nice liveaboards at the marina.


Getting there...
