This was the gillnetter's spartan cabin looking aft. Two berths. Top bunk single, lower double. Stove forward to starboard. (This thing kicked butt and kept the cabin at a constant toasty temperature, as well as water boiling continuously for coffee, although I really didn't drink too much.) Forward of the stove is the galley. And forward to starboard is the helm (or whatever they call it on motorboats) - see the picture below. Port side settee (where I learned to play cribbage on the way back while passing through Deception Pass with the flood tide).

So I drove to Bellevue tonight for a dinner forum on Biodiesel. It was a rental car and other than being able to listen to the Introduction To Nick Drake CD (twice) - I would've rathered my VW. But tomorrow I return the rental car and look forward to resuming the cruiser as the mode of transport. A friend that currently lives in Denver that I met when we were both living in Cincinnati (who incidentally is from near Pittsburgh) gave me the Nick Drake CD years ago, and I think it is probably the overall most favorite music I possess. But back to the is a fascinating industry in which to be working, and the people with whom I work are incredibly intelligent.

I also got my motorcycle endorsement today and my ticket number (to wait in line) was 666 - the sign of the beast. Ominous?
