Thank You, Richard!
One thing most power boaters don't have to worry about is climbing a mast. Now, Viking Star DOES have a mast, but not nearly like even small sailboats.
This past week, during calm but very cold weather, our dock mate Richard climbed the mast of his sailboat, Sarita. He needed to replace his windex. No, not Windex, the window cleaner. But something like this:

While Richard was up there, he took the time to take a few photos! And he sent this one over the other day. We have not seen Viking Star from this perspective before. We are the third boat up, and we can see that we are the smallest kid on the block!
