@farmerman,
Yachties all wear yellow wellies. Food workers tend to wear green wellies.

And from a gangboard if that isn't regulated to the tide. (Experienced that a couple of times in Normandie. The worst was when I almost fall with all the ship's day food waste into the totally polluted harbour basin.)

@bobsal u1553115,
sorry, I spilled my bvvy on the dmn thing (I brought a laptop so I could see stuff btter, Im tracking White sharks that are tagged and on line )
We're near Cape Chas and we are anchored in the ICW for the night. we didnt make great time today we hit some rougher water and had to ride it out at a slower pace. It calm in here . Im thinking we are going to see some weather changes even though noone calls for it. Took the zodiac in and bought om clams. CLAMS n BEER, I had half a beer an Im smacked.

@farmerman,
Sounds like great day. One week in 99, I coffee'd two computers in a week. Two brand spanking new Dell Inspirons. The first one I fried, but the second one I pulled the power and popped the battery. I let it dry out for a couple of weeks and used it to run AutoCad for a couple of years. I used it for social media and e-mail for another six years and gave it to a friend who's e-mail laptop died.

If you don't dump coffee on 'em and you have a good protection and accept updates, suckers will go a long time.

@bobsal u1553115,
boy, somebody really loves you. Qhered all these upvotes come from???
Anyway, were coming up to chestertown and we will be pulling into the home port within the next hour. Ive been talking with some member the last half hour and missed all the porpoises. Theyve come back to the Chesapeake so heavily that they are a hazard to cargo ships and the fsheries.

Georgetown U is tracking them and the numbers are staggering espcially lower Bay islands.

@farmerman,
I have a fan, FreedomEyeLove, who's making an obscure point.

The numbers of porpoises is a good thing in general, though. Another example of the pandemic benefiting animals and lessening pollution or just a quirk or a side effect of global warming?

Some crabcakes on the menu?

@bobsal u1553115,
the Chesapeake has been cleaning and populating with stripers and blues etc. The porpoises are a result of water quality rather than some climate related water rise. Sea grassws hav rturnd , so have crabs .Snakeheads have been discovered as a really good crispy fish. I think e need to come up with a better name for snakeheads .

BTW, FEL is a kind of douche bag , like pinky or ollie. People want to get into a conversation and hes baiting . I bit into his comic book and t turned into a chemitry lesson. I dont know why I just dont ignore these 4 or 5 assholes

@farmerman,
I like small sheepshead (under 12"), they have a poor name for marketing, too.

They refuse to be ignored, I finally have and its easier than I thought. But to work we need to make it a group effort.

Unless you got suckered into a top of the line Microsoft Surface Book. The batteries expand after a couple of years causing the screen to pop out of the housing. Buying another one is Microsoft's recommended fix.

@Leadfoot,
I have a computer sized plastic container into which the laptop fits on a boat. It sits where all the chart plotters and GPS and LL lay.
Then, I often cover the whole mess with a 6 mike weighted plastic sheet. Sometimes we will travel with the Pilot house ope and you can get sprayed on if you gt a small "rogue wave" SALT WATER is not our friend

@farmerman,
There is Surface and there is Surface Book. The 'book' has batteries in the display housing, the Surface has them in the keyboard housing so it does not have this problem. I should have bought a Surface, I never use the detachable display of the Book version as a tablet anyway.
