We arrived in Soloman Island about noon and as we were entering I got an email from Frank & Carrie on "Once Around" saying they were in the Soloman Harbor on their dingy - so, as we were tying up they came along and we made plans to meet up for lunch. Let me tell you about their dingy - centre console inflatable with a 40 HP motor, GPS & fish finder,VHF radio, drink holders - it's like a second home - Frank had it shipped from California cause he wanted his dingy!!! Not only that but it sits on a platform that lowers into the water. You step off the boat into the dingy press a button and you're off!!! I WANT ONE!!
|SUPER DINGY & CARRIE -this is actually from today in Oxford|
Anyhow, just as we were settling in a Portuguese Water Dog and it's owners came down the dock - they had been watching us enter the harbor as they were sitting on their 1979, 53 Hatteras Yachtfish !! Would you believe their dogs name is Zeke!!! Really nice people - Tim & Jan and they are actually members of the Hatteras 1510 club we joined - so they are the first people we have meet.
