Captain Bob fueling at Bobby’s Fish Camp, a most interesting
place. Notice the lone fuel pump on the dock (one side diesel, one
side gas). Bobby controls the on/off switch at the pumps on the hill;
when you’re finished fueling you go up and pay. We hold 400
gallons of diesel fuel, so if we’re not at high-speed pumps
(most of them are not), it takes awhile. Think of us the next time
you’re filling up your land vehicle and be happy. Again, this
is a fuel dock where everyone stops – last fuel for over 200
miles. Tying on here was an experience. Since there are no pilings
and no one to help, the First Mate had to jump down to the wet dock
when the Captain got close enough and quickly secure us to the dock.
It was actually easier than it appeared, or else we’re getting
good! (You can interchange the words good and lucky at any time during
this discourse.) We decided to anchor out this night; found another
good anchorage, thanks to one of our guide books, and all went well.
