I had the good fortune to pull into Swan Point Marina looking for some water and a place to rest. Little did I know I was about to meet some amazing folks! After looking over their supplies, including fiber glass and resin for the boat, I decided to simply buy some chips and chocolate for lunch.
A few minutes later, Ed comes out and asks me if I want to just pull the boat and repair it now. He has all the supplies and offers to help. Well it took me about two seconds to say yes and before I knew it I had a repaired boat. No way I am going to wear a hole through patch.
However that was just the beginning of this little visit. Turns out that Ed is the self proclaimed "Nicest Republican I will ever meet". Well, he sure did a great job of proving his point. Later he offered me a night on his boat, which for me meant no sand!!
There was just a great group of folks and a couple of beautiful Pit Bulls that I met at that marina and their hospitality and friendship were greatly apprecated and never forgotten. The owners of the marina get a big thank you for allowing me, my Yak, and all my gear to be spread over their fuel dock. It is a full service marina so stood p by and say hello if you are passing through those waters.
