CS34 Amsterdam Brew Pub

After breakfast on the boat, I set out to get some things ready for our trip to Sodus Bay for LYRA.

When we went to BBQ last night, the BBQ would not light.  I took the unit off the back of the boat and took it apart on shore and gave it a good cleaning.  Worked fine after it dried out.

Next up was cleaning and blowing up the dinghy.  After a good cleaning, I found that I could not blow up one of the air chambers; the valve was broken off.

Good Valve

BAD Valve
Was wondering what the pieces of plastic all over the bottom of the dinghy!

Called all the local chandleries for replacement valves, and nobody had replacement valves.

FOGH Marine referred me to CO2 Inflatables in Oakville.  They had replacement valve for $35 a piece, plus another $10 for the tool to remove and install it.  TOO bad I wasn't in Oakville anymore (5km cab ride from The Oakville Club).

Arranged for my friend Bruce to pickup the replacements on Tuesday and delivery to me in Toronto.

Off we went on Still Time with Don/Jude and Wally/Grace to tour the islands:

We parked the boat right outside the Amsterdam Brew Pub for lunch:

Awesome lunch

We did a walking trip to the Dock Shoppe (and Beer Store).

New dinghy was priced at $1795.

Did pickup a new Canadian flag and a stainless fitting to put it on the stern rail:

I didn't turn the GPS on for the trip.

We went back Hanlan's Wall and said goodbye to our friends, and went on to RCYC

OCanada, Derek Hatfield's Open 60 was moored off of RCYC.
Canadian Eric Holden is campaigning it for the single handed Vendez Globe race next year.
We had saw the boat in the Lake Ontario 300; crewing on it was Picton's Sandy McPherson.

Bruce could not pickup the part for the dinghy, and was hoping to do it tomorrow morning.

We need the dingy to anchor in Sodus Bay, and we have to be in Sodus Bay on Thursday evening.  Cutting it fine: 109 to Sodus Bay from Toronto.
