Okay Laddies! Batten Down The Hatches!

My ship came in yesterday. Yes, my Porta-Bote arrived at International Whatever trucking in Charlotte. I couldn’t wait for a Monday delivery so I ventured out in a pouring cold rain to pick up Origami II.

As I arrived home I check the mail and found a set of “Origami” lettering send from St Croix. It was cosmic…meant to be.

I took two sets of lettering down for Michael in February. Michael used one set and shipped the others back for me to use.

So now I have this long cardboard box in my truck, and another box with oars, padding and seats.

You can bet your ass that I’ll have this boat out, put together, and lettered before the day is over, that is if the gale winds will die down. See how I’m talking all nautical and stuff?

I was so excited about my new found hobby that I bought a cheap marine radio online this morning. Now I can wreak havoc on the airwaves as I travel the seas.
