    Chillin' on the boat at the dock is one of the best benefits - especially for the captain who can now pay attention to the drinks and entertainment.

    Nice! My chillin time is usually after returning to the dock and washing the boat I get to sit back and enjoy a cocktail or two.

    Careful docking your boat sideways like that. :)

    Looks like an awesome night. Good looking LED's there too....

    That's my favorite time of the night!

    Sit back, relax, no more worrying about drunks and rookies out on the water. My slip is as relaxing as it gets!

    Love the LED's!

    When we get back to the dock and once, I get the lines done and the shore power hooked up so the AC can be turned back on, the admiral rings the bell which means the captain can start enjoying beer.
    Best of times.

    it is times like this when you can sit back and reflect on the time and money you have spent to bring things into proper working order and the sense of pride that it gives you.....for me personally these times are hard to beat....

    Our boating is a bit different... my time starts when I get rafted up to the group of friends on the hook.

    When I get back to the dock on Sunday, it's to pack up and head home.

    Pretty cool.

    We ran 10 hours today. Got tied up. Washed down the boat.

    Walked across to the restaurant and had dinner, then came back for a "cocktail in the marina".

    One of the joys of boating.

    I hope one of the joys was not the fuel burn for 10 hours... For me it would be the cocktail to help forget the 10 hour burn

    We have had a lot of 10 days in the last couple of weeks.

    One days worth was not that bad.

    All the work and money it takes to own and run a boat is all worth it when you can sit back with drink after a good day on the water and enjoy

    Had a buddy of mine fly his drone over my boat to take pics. So awesome seeing from that angle
