Jenée's family is here.
And it's a beautiful day at Big Canyon Country Club.
Getting ready for a family photo. This is a test smile.
We don't have everyone in the photo, oh well. That's Andy and fiancé Kayleigh Horn. Sheri Horn, Her sister Jenée and Jenée's baby Garrett. Kayleigh is a junior member of the club and the ladies champion. You could say it runs in the family. If you saw my game, you'd say, not so much.
Weeks later, Jenée's Mom Charlene and sister Sheri join us for dinner in San Diego.
And later still we are joined by Jenée's friend Martha for a lobster feast at the Boathouse restaurant next to our marina and Jungle.
Jenée and BFF Martha Williams.
And me with are Martha's two dumplings.
Time to go for a cruise over to Coronado.
Passing a tall ship along the way.
At anchor we are joined by our marina friends Mark and Holly and Amos and Shari for a cocktail.
The ladies enjoy the sunny weather - it's always sunny aboard Jungle.
The next day, Jenée and I take the ferry back into San Diego for a little food shopping.
We continue our bike ride.
We join friends Dennis and Lori Puddester for dinner and a silly picture.
Back on board Jungle it's time to get back to work. First up is a servicing of the bow thruster.
Revarnish of the teak toe rails.
And a long delayed refinish inside the pilot house. Years of moisture have affected the veneer wood finish of the pilot house walls. First step is to remove the old cracked veneer...
Patch over with new veneer panelling ...
Then a filling and fairing of the gaps between old veneer (painted white) and the new veneer (natural wood color). This is the starboard side of the pilot house.
This is the port side with the new veneer...
Filled and faired to cover the gaps...
Painted white to cover all.
Look at the finished product with trim put back in place - sweet.
More repair work to be done...
And the finished product.
Time to paint the seats....
I painted the complete Pilot House. We're happy with the results.
And then moved on to the main engine ...
While we're at it, how about a brand new toilet !? What fun we have aboard Jungle.
