Aboard Astraea

Invest in experiences, not things

Smells like diesel

Sheen in the water by the 600 dock. It may make for a pretty picture, but it's not good for the environment.

When we came home on Wednesday it smelled like diesel outside and there was a sheen on the surface of the water. Even though the picture I took looks pretty, putting fuel in to the water in the marina is a federal offense. I haven’t heard anything around the docks, but my suspicion is there was a fuel leak from a tank into the bilge of someone’s boat, their bilge pump kicked on and then pumped it out in to the marina.

No update on where Astraea is, but she’s getting closer every day. This weekend I’ll put down another coat of varnish and finish installing the cockpit locker hinges. Monday’s a holiday, so I’ll get three good coats on and clean the boat up again.
