All three days of this weekend were extremely hot and very humid. In the evenings, the weather was very unsettled, so no really good sunsets to share. Saturday, was spent running the satellite antenna wire from the dish through the stainless rail and into the locker so it could be fed down into the main salon. But before it could be fed into the locker, Bob had to climb into the locker to drill a hole through the fly bridge combing and into the stainless rail. For awhile, it looked like he might have to stay in the locker as there wasn't much room to move!
Fortunately, he was able to drill the hole and find a way to remove himself from the locker.
Sunday morning we continued with the installation, and finished it up before taking a break for the annual Brewers Yacht Yard picnic. Each year the marina staff provides hamburgs, hotdots, chicken, beer, wine and soda. All the boatowners bring their favorite dish to share and there is always a great selection of salads, sides and sweets to pick from. This year, music was provided by Backwoods Zydeco. A band that included an accordian, a squeeze box and washboard along with guitars. Everyone had a great time eating and listening to the music.
Because the fog rolled in around sunset, this was the best I could do! If you look close at the top middle of the picture, you can make out the sun.
The sun was out bright and early on Monday, and by 8 AM it must have been 80 degrees already. After breakfast, Lynda made a call to KVH (the manufacturer of the satellite dish and receiver) for technical assistance. This time they were able to determine the problem and we now have all the channels that we are supposed to get in the package we chose. Bob did a fantastic job of locating a place to install the receiver, and then making it look so professional. We should now be able to receive TV programming almost anywhere we travel to. Below is a picture of the finished installation, it looks terrific. The satellite receiver is almost hidden, you can see it just below the TV.
Below is tonight's sunset, now I guess we'll watch some TV and go to bed early since we need to get up early tomorrow, Lynda needs to go back to work. See you on the weekend!
