So, just because the universe wants me to stay humble;
Lessons Learned During a Trip to the Floating Gas Station:
- When filling your tank, technically the boat should tell you when it’s full by spurting a little bit of fuel out the overflow port. Technically. MY boat overflows for no good reason at all, just because it feels like it.
- Diesel in the USA is pink. Diesel in Canada looks like lime kool-aid.
- Don’t untie your boat from the dock until you’ve ensured that the engine is going to start.
- If the engine doesn’t so much as turn over, it’s probably the batteries. The battery charger on my new generator is so handy! I didn’t really expect to need it quite so soon.
- The tidal bore under the Lion’s Gate Bridge can be vicious, with choppy standing waves, whirlpools and eddies!
- …actually no #6 right now, I’m going to get back to piloting the boat home.
*sigh*. I’m learning so much, so quickly. I’d say ‘sink or swim’, but I really don’t want to tempt fate.
