S/V SAGA got a little TLC today. Her bottom received a fresh coat of paint. Will she sail the high seas soon??? We’ll see!
Today Kenny, Amy, Kim, David and I handed out about 450 survival whistles at the Beaufort public docks and the Emerald Isle public boat ramp.
Today is the first day of National Safe Boating Week. We give these whistles out free of charge in memory of our baby brother, Keith, who lost his life last January in a boating “accident”:
Whistles are purchased by our family and with donations made by friends, relatives, and those we meet telling Keith’s story. Many people asked today how they can make a contribution to future events. Checks may be made payable to Kelly Wyatt and mailed to P.O. Box 4481, Emerald Isle NC, 28594.
Here are some pictures from today:
- Beaufort, NC public marina, 10:00am-2:00pm

Saturday launches the 2015 National Sate Boating Week.
Remember…. practice safe boating: Always wear a whistle.
