Asteki... Stuck on the bottom.
Well we've been having some insane tidal shifts, and that coupled with a sustained 20 knot breeze, blew all the water out of the cut. Asteki was left sitting high and dry. An unplanned careening... of sorts. Generally when the keel is showing, and she's heeled over... there is a sail up.
It would have been a good time to clean out some through hull fittings, and swap the hose to the sink... if Dinky was painted and ready for the water... Oh yeah, and had some oarlocks. Grin!
The next night, I was on board working... when she touched bottom. 6 feet off the dock, and 6 feet down... luckily I was only captive for two hours huddled beside my little electric heater. Brrr!
As you can see Pylasteki's name had to be shortened slightly when I installed the outboard bracket while floating in Coinjock, NC. So... while still called Pylasteki, her stern reads Asteki. Sigh... another thing on the list.
