Aaron / Palmyra Atoll


30 minutes prior to this photograph,
"Lime Juice" had his first lesson in using a cutting torch.

Two days later our dive boat trailer was
rust free, had two new axles, four new tires
and a revolutionary suspension requiring no springs
... built mostly from stock
material already in Palmyra's shop.
Origin of his nickname ...
"I needed to ID my VHF radio
and then found an extra food label already printed in the galley."

Country could use a few more Aaron's to solve the deficit problem.
