HAPPY HOUR AT THE DOCK

Every afternoon between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m., cruisers emerge from their boats, drink in hand, occasionally a snack, to gather at the end of the dock .  Information is exchanged, gossip is repeated, and impressions are shared.  Much is learned through the experience of others so there is a lot of chit-chat while watching for the green flash.  Here is the Fall 2002 class photo of cruisers at TTYC (Trinidad and Tobago Yacht Club).

MODEL BOAT RACES

On one of Bob's Sunday walks, he discovered model boat races at the local beach.  The remote-controlled mini-cigarette boats about three feet long go amazingly fast across the water.  Some are equipped with two-cycle model airplane motors, others with four-cycle chain saw motors.  On land, the boats sit on stands so the propellers won't get damaged.

Note the orange bladder of gasoline in the boat at immediate left.
