Meh, Average docking experience. Got a lot wetter than I had planned, which subsequently caused me to be the only shirtless and pantless guest at the albatross that night. I hadn’t planned on causing a scene, but the flamboyant and lovely barkeep named Sebastian, let me throw my wet clothes in the dryer down stairs. In the meantime a local, named mad-eyed-Pete offered to take me back to his place for the night to “warm up.” Initially I thought he was joking but before long it was apparent that old Petey was on the prowl. I don’t kiss and tell but... It was a long night. Next day back at the harbor, I found my boat had been completely stripped. Engine, fuel tank, electronics, seats, glass, you name it, it was all gone. Needless to say I got the heck out of there, hitching a boat ride back to Cape Town with some Somali pirates. Learned how to swab the poop deck, and the true meaning of bow and stern. Just glad they didn’t make me walk the plank!
Good place to be. One of the remote harbours on earth.
