After some maintenance work aboard, I went ashore in the morning to get some more parts for the boat and talk with the refrigeration people regarding adding gas to my A/C units, particularly the main cabin one which has never cooled and which has what I suspect is a big leak. After that I dropped by the SMYC and ended up spending a long time with Deborah and Paul Miller as well as Ian Hope-Ross (who races “Kick 'em Jenny 2” and after watching them drink those tasty Bloody Marys I succumbed and had a beer which meant that the rest of the day was shot for me.
While I didn't take a nap in the afternoon, I might as well have done so as I didn't really do anything at all, at least until later on when I worked inside the boat and got prepared for happy hour and dinner. I ended up staying aboard despite the full moon parties going on ashore and made a quick burger dinner on the BBQ and then looking at my disk drive with movies for something to watch. I chose 2 early episodes of “Monty Python's Flying Circus” before shutting down the computer and reading for a bit. I put the fan in the cabin on medium speed to drown out the loud noise from the parties at Palapa and elsewhere and soon fell into a deep sleep.
