Highlights: Had a disaster in the harbor this morning - one of the sailboats in the mooring field caught fire and burned to the waterline. Black smoke and flames were pouring out of the boat for about 45 minutes, in spite of efforts of nearby boaters and the fire department from the shore. The boat eventually rolled over, which put out most of the flames, but the smoke and smell lingered for a few more hours. Not sure how the fire started - one report was that they had left the engine running to charge up the batteries while they rented a car and toured the island, so might have been an overcharged battery. Very sad to see, and hard to imagine the shock and sense of loss the owners must have felt when they returned from their day trip. Not much else going on these past few days - just enjoying the town with our buddy boaters (Deb and Dennis), catching up on boat projects, and general reading and relaxing.
