May 27th, 2010, Edith & Rick Crosby& Don Marks

The Crosby's and the Marks are old customers, they have been aboard RA in the past. The last time Don was on RA it was a rainy day. It seems that he brings the rain with him. He came all the way from Mount Dora to sail again. We managed to have a nice day except for a few sprinles. Here is what Rick wrote in the log:

"It was a stormy day and the tales got saltier by the minute, It was to be a three hour tour but the tiny ship was tossed, If not for the brave captain and his mate we may have gotten lost, but we reached safe harbor and a fun adventure was had by all" Modified by Martin Airey.
