The three AGLCA burgees of Jackpot, New Hope, and Shellerina all align nicely here at Harrisville (MI) Harbor of Refuge this afternoon. We could not have planned it better!
The burgee of Just Passin’ Thru is also in-port tonight. Eric and I will have to have a discussion with the harbor master about the proper place of honor for the American Flag on a yacht club’s flagpole!
Also in-port tonight: Dawg Haus 3, No Skulduggery, and Knot Normal. Yesterday we also met the Loopers aboard Kulana, R & R, and Saphire C. It has been a busy place!
Flag protocol aside, the staff of this state-run marina has been well above average: e.g, shuttle runs into town as time allows, hosing off the droppings on the new dock system, wiping the bugs off the power pedestals, helping every vessel into her slip, and most importantly being on top of their game on VHF-09 for incoming boats who need direction!!!
Treat yourself to the Top Notch Crew here in Harrisville.
Also, where does the American Flag go on a gaffed-rigged flag pole?
