Curated by a retired Port Engineer, living (with his wife of 55 years) full-time aboard the Motor Vessel So..fea….in a windy Pacific harbor surrounded by nature, weather, dockside scuttlebutt & maritime experiences forged from traveling amongst cultures, navigating through a wide variety of topics, research, and observations of global marine/ocean-related news and politics in the America of 2021 and how and how it all affects the liveaboard lifestyle see Archives (top left)
3 February, 2018 - SHIPS LOG
WEATHER:still 50 degrees, overcast with mostly all sun, zero rain, balmy, mix of fog sessions and blah 47 degrees every night for a low ! five days predicted of full sun next week WIND: 0 - 2 SEAS: calm flat SCUTTLEBUTT: no rain making this weather scary. EVENTS: The 20 year-old whazammo.com website (and perhaps the bi-weekly Whazammo Podcast radio station as well) is being reconstructed, and will be taking over many sea and boat related issues that this blog is inappropriate for, (just as it was "before" So...fea came into the picture), watch for it in late February.
\NOTES: With the new-found knowledge about security cameras and "where" they are, again brought to mind my earlier (12 November) "go-nowhere" two night time-stamped complaint that was in full view and range of the ramp mounted camera. That nights screaming would have certainly triggered the cameras by sound and by after-dark motion, the lighted dock area would make for easy viewing with a fully unobstructed night vision camera 150 feet away - - especially as the people had to enter and leave 15 feet away from the camera in full view at the ramp.
Saturday night (tonight), was the second night in a row when 10 young men noisely come down the ICM ramp shrieking at 2345, strip off their clothes and skinny dip off A-dock across from the SW corner of Novellis (make that LOUDLY skinny dip) they use the dock power console light to undress, stand around naked awhile, shrieking, then redress, tonight, they inspected Novelli's overhead door, padlock and windows with a flash light, continued yelling loudly then dispersed back up the same ramp at exactly 2355 and head West into town afoot.
Both nights I was phone in-hand just as they decided to leave, too many rowdies to confront or hit with flood lights and siren (and reveal my presence), their short stay precludes calling 911, three in a row ? we will see tomorrow
