Of course we clean them!

Whenever a guest asks if we clean the masks and snorkels between charters, and I say "Yes, of course we clean them!" I feel like nobody ever believes me. Especially when they then go straight to the sink and wash out their mask and snorkel!
Well, here is proof that we clean and sanitize the snorkels and masks after every charter. Also, we let them enjoy a pretty sunset while they soak.
We are off charter for at least a week.  Not a true vacation, as we have to run a hundred errands and fix a dozen things around the boat. If we get all that done and have time to spare, will get at least a day or two to relax.... YAY!

Dolphins in Great Harbour, JVD, doing tricks just for us!

Yeah, I did that

So, this post is a blast from the past that I just found on a camera from our storage unit. Last season, there was a request for full coverage shade on the bow. There was also mention that orange was a favortie color. Orange 4-way stretch spandex is not in great demand so I was able to buy a bolt for a pretty low price... and this is what I did.
I bought a sewing maching for Diadem because I was also making pillows and curtains for the interor, but the largest project by far was this bow shade. I'm a little curious how the material has held up to UV degradation. It was beautiful when it was completed! No flapping in the breeze, it looked like it was breathing as gusts of wind passed from bow to stern because the material would silently expand and contract. Sasha and I really enjoyed lying under there in the late afternoon.
I've had requests from other crew to make these for their boats, but having no idea how long the material will last I'm hesitant.
