Monday on Key West

    This is one of those days that I guess that I should have gone ahead and slept in.    It was an air conditioning service day, the cooling system on the boat passes sea water through the system, and about every other month the sea critters try to make their homes in the warm water of the system and clog the lines making the system over heat.    Today is the day that I have to turn off the A/C and back flush the lines.

   This is one of the times that living on a boat really sucks.     The boat will heat up really quick and your clothing turn to liquid almost immediately.    It takes about an hour and a half to flush the lines of the three systems, and by the time you are finished you need a cold shower just to cool off and bury the clothes you are wearing, or scuttle them.

     The process is done and the boat is finally cooling back down.  Perfect time for me to escape  to the office and write this blog for today.    I really still love being on the boat, but like any lifestyle, there are parts of it that none of us ever enjoy.   I hope that your day is going well and you get to enjoy the rest of your day like I am.  You know that when it is all said and done, I am still living here in Key West and paradise just out the door and a short dinghy ride away.   ;o)
