Alyssa and Lauren and Some Dude Cast Off The Bottle At Good Harbor Beach Message In A Bottle Part IV

Mark Ring found the bottle floating 200 yards directly in front of Hammond Castle two days after the girls released it from Good Harbor Beach.  When I asked him how he knew it was special, he simply replied- “It’s experience Joe.  It’s experience”

Alyssa and Lauren just happened to have taken pictures with the bottle before it was released!IMG_9148

Greasin’ the Bearing

see that rubber disk mat that Matt Ring is fixing back into place on the deck of The Stanley Thomas?

That rubber disk mat covers the hatch which Mark just climbed down into to grease the shaft bearing.  The shaft is what connects the transmission to the propeller.  The easier the shaft turns the smoother the boat runs.  Simple right?  The sucky part is climbing down into the bilge with only about 3 feet of clearance to get to said bearing where the grease fitting resides.  You can see Mark with the paper towel wiping off the sludge from down in the bilge- Good Times.

Video coming tomorrow.
