We drove straight from the airport to the Blue Pearl - a little under an hour.
We are not allowed to work on the boat in the yard so we've hired a contractor to buff and polish and then to apply our new bottom paint. His quotes were quite reasonable so we decided to let someone else endure the fumes in the heat.

|Yay - it fits|
We are staying in a B&B near the marina for a couple of days until the boat is in the water. We huddle in our air-conditioned room or sit by the pool. We are working to adjust to the heat and humidity but it is daunting. Spending time in air-conditioned malls and grocery stores is appealing.
The weather is a result of the remnants of hurricane Sandy that is currently passing over Cuba on its way north. Hopefully we will have clear skys in a couple of days.
