Out for a tour

Since Tammy's hip replacement we haven't been out so I got brave this time, deciding to single hand the boat and take her for a ride.  I constructed a lasso to catch the cleat and hold the boat in place when docking, since my faithful crew cannot step onto the dock just yet.  We motored around the Galveston Bay for a while then returned to the dreaded docking.  I missed the cleat but was moving slow enough that Tammy caught the next cleat, with the lasso, on the finger pier and all went well with her still being my crew; so much for me single handing!
