We awoke this morning with the first ferry into Cruz Bay.  I think its name was Carribe Sun, the worst of the pack, this guy keep the turbos spooled right past the harbor entrance marker.  

We needed to move.  Jake pulled up both anchors and we motored one mile north to Caneel Bay and picked up a State Park mooring.  All coffeed up I felt motivated enough to start scrubbing the boat.  All the decks were scrubbed, and tried a new Muriatic Acid 10% solution on the stainless.  It worked like a charm, especially when I got two full strength drips on my foot while mixing it.  Just as I was pouring it a ferry wake upset the boat.

Jake had proclaimed it a "stay out of the sun day," but did make it on deck long enough to attempt building a roll control device to stabilize the boat while at anchor.  We had noticed a neighboring boat that had one deployed and it was working well.  Jake hung a five gallon bucket from the end of the boom underwater.  It did not work as well as our neighbor. 

Jake, Andy, and Lance went on a sundowner hike up Caneel hill while I finished up the cleaning.  When they returned it was discovered that there is WiFi on the entire harbor.  Jake and I took the launch to Yolo for an internet sesch.  Dinner: Corned Beef Hash.

Tomorrow: Grady
