Rescue Mission

September 2, 2005


When I came down to the boat the next morning, it was floating a few feet away from the dock. Both ropes had been untied from where I fastened them the night before. A pair of men’s shoes had been left in the bow. I wanted to examine the evidence more carefully, but a security guard was walking over, so I hopped in the boat and paddled away.


I was happy to leave the dock.


I brought the boat to another pier and waited for Nathan Carter. He had agreed to pick the boat up in his truck and move it upriver. Because the boat had been held captive for the night – I missed one tide cycle and had to cancel three of my trips. All these docks in Redhook look nice but they are inaccessable to the Tide and Current Taxi.
