The man recording this video was a neighbor of mine when I was living at anchor on SV Third Aye and working at Key West SNUBA. His name is Carl Drysdale.
Not only did he help look after my boat when I was away, he introduced me to the growing popularity of YouTube back then. Just today I decided to look up his You Tube account and see what he has been up to lately. I came across this 7-year-old yet still amazing example of what the salty boating people are like down in Key West. From what I can see, this has been recorded on the fuel dock of the Key West Bight Marina, which is in front of Turtle Kraals. Man, how I love Key West.
You have to give this guy a listen. Carl doesn’t give us the name of the talent. However, I can tell you that this is a Gene Autry song from 1939 called “South of the Border.” I especially like the “Aye Aye Aye” part. Call it a tribute to SV Third Aye, our adventures in Mexico, and the realization it’s time to go.
