The dignhy or zodiac is what allows us to go from to boat to shore.
Mommy told me Daddy was going to splash the boat and bring it at anchor. She says the boat is ready. Then he will pick us up in the thing they call dinghy. They say it’s like a car. Doesn’t look like one to me. No way! I will definitely go with Daddy now:
-So you are removing the boat name, huh Sam? asks Mike in the boat yard.
-Yep! Have to. Once it is registered, you need to have it written on the hull, replies Sam hands full of goo gone.
He would have million things to do more important, but legally, it needs to happen: Sam has to change the decal on the boat. And quite honestly, changing the boat name when it’s in the water is pretty hard.
2 weeks before Sam leaves to go refitting the boat, he is talking with his best friend Vincent:
-You’re sure you want to spend part of your parental leave to come at the boat yard and work with me? I mean, it will be stinky, it will be crazy hot, I don’t have a fridge because it only works when the boat is in the water, the shower on the boat yard smells rotten eggs. Worst, I can only offer you American beer at the end of the day.
For the last time before we leave, we are with Sophie, our doctor guru. She is teaching us how to make stitches. Honestly : I hope if won’t need some. But if we need some, and cannot reach medical assistance, better safe than sorry.
We bought a pork leg to practice.
-So here, you turn the thread around the plyers and you pull to make the knot.
