On board were the Caravan Stage company which performs on the deck of this boat. The masts and rigging are used for scenery, lighting and special effects. The shows are staged on the entire deck and on the surrounding ground while the boat is docked. The boat has a shallow draft which allows it greater mobility for performance venues. It is not however a sea worthy vessel--it would not be wise to take this boat out into the ocean.
"Hacked" is the name of the current performance. They were leaving Jacksonville heading to Portsmouth Virginia for 3 days of shows in early July with performances through out the summer in Maryland, New Jersey, and Canada before finishing the season in Brooklyn, New York.
|These performers obviously fell for Piper who ate up all the attention|
As I was making coffee the next morning I glanced out the window to see two of the men aboard using our water hose after removing the spray attachment. I don't mind sharing our hose or our water, but they were using it to bathe on the dock. Showers are provided by the marina with both hot and cold running water. They had options. They obviously did not understand that the hose provides our CLEAN DRINKING water because they proceeded to put the hose directly onto their armpits, head and bodies. Looks like we will be cleaning the hose with Clorox.
Life at the marina is always interesting....
