Here's the food as we finished it at home:
Chicken Long Rice
Preping the ingredients
Needless to say all the food was gone, we fed about 50 people including the Coast Guard Aux Volunteers. Happily they inspected the carolmarie, and she passed with flying colors. Here's her decal proudly displayed on the mast.
Our plans for sailing this coming weekend were dashed last night. We got a call from the vendor doing the brightwork on the boat. She told us she had just finished putting 5 coats of Bristol Epoxy on the cap rail and all the stantion were down, so there were no life lines up. The stantion rest against the cap rail so to make a clean job, she removed them to enable brightwork under them. She has also done an awesome job at taping the boat off to apply the epoxy. Since there is one more coat to go, after sanding there is no reason to pull the tape off and only to apply it again soon. I went to see her last night and took a couple of pictures in the dark. The carolmarie really shines now.
Well the pieces are all coming together to bring the carolmarie back together. I received the boat graphics from Kevin and Linda on Thursday. They look amazing and will look great on the stern.
