HARBOUR NORTH MARINA, CHESAPEAKE CITY, MD (PART 1)
16 September, 2004. We stayed at a dive motel the night before arriving back in Chesapeake City, MD. Nothing to report there. Jason, the boat salesman here at Harbour North Marina, had found us a 6 horsepower outboard motor for $41 on ebay which he was going to pick up in Philadelphia a few hours after we arrived. Rocky went with him and it looks like it's going to work just fine after some basic maintenance. We've been having dinner with Jason and he's been letting us sleep on his houseboat. We love this place. The owner, Paul, has been very accommodating and we're hoping to repay his hospitality by fixing up and selling some of the boats that are just taking up space here. We still need to apply bottom paint to our 24 foot Tidewater sailboat, patch the sail and string the mast but we hope to get it in the water soon so we can learn to sail and then re-sell it in Annapolis. We're eyeing some 25 and 27 foot sailboats for our next project. We can't get internet access yet.
