Day 30 Nov 17 Marlow Marine

Marlow Explorer in dry dockThe newspaper was delivered in time for breakfast. The next couple of hours were in the engine room checking the batteries and changing the injector pump oil. We fueled up and got pumped out and left for Marlow at noon. The tide was at low tide and the water in Terra Ceia Bay was very low. At one point the sounder showed -0.8 feet under the keel. The rudder touched once. We tied up at the Marlow dock and had power and water. This is a very well run boat works. Everything is newly painted, well organized and the staff is in uniform. It is a Grand Banks heaven! There must be 15 for sale; all 42 or 46 footers. The 36 foot are rare I was told. The boat will be stored tomorrow in one corner of a huge shed. It will be dwarfed by the Marlow Explorer. Two Katy Leigh's could be stored end to end beside the Explorer. Marlow has these built to their design in China. The one in the photo is of number 11. Doc & Eileen Wilson (Kenlake boaters) very kindly picked us up at the marina and took us to their new home (2 weeks old) near here for dinner
