Welcome to Skunk News, where we will keep you up to date on all things Maritime Sanitation.
You may know by now that Autie and Janie McVicker are participating in Mango Creek Lodge, Roatan Honduras. They are long time sailors like ourselves and have business in the US and Honduras. We met up over the usual chit chat and sips at the restaurant here at MCL. They had been building their home on the island and had visited Port Royal many times since the 1980’s. Well, you guessed it. They wanted in and we allowed it so we can continue to serve our clients while improving the grounds and equipment. Autie has said some things you may be interested to hear. “Terry and Patrice have put the soul into this place and we hope to be of use to support the operation and increase the number of folks coming down for fun. Our commitment here is based on the joy we feel when here and a belief that many more years of smiles are in the offing.”
Things will remain the same here at MCL as we want you comfortable, full of good food and grinning ear to ear from a fishing trip or day snorkeling. You may even be interested in two significant developments in the works now. First, we are adding another, larger over the water cabana which will be handicapped friendly and can also fit a whole family for their vacation. Second, the tree houses are coming along. Two of these elevated cabins will be situated near the waterfall and have connecting walkways near the tree tops! Can’t wait for you to try ‘em out.
Patrice and I are very excited and if you haven’t been back here for awhile book now and come to see the changes. Never been to Mango Creek? Get busy and let me know your plans so we can hold a space. You may even run into Autie looking for duppies up on the hill…

September 30, 2011 -Mike Seich has passed away. We are saddened to lose our Captain Poop. He has been a fixture here at Maritime for many years and is loved by our team and many area boaters. Michael Seich, Jr. was 77 and had served in Korea, been superintendent for Dow for many years, sailed the Gulf racing with GBCA and won many awards as a free diver and spear fisherman. Mike was a true gentleman even though his gruff voice and strong language may have been less gentle.
No one was quicker to help the needy, serve his friends and family and be there when needed than Mike Seich. We already miss Captain Poop and would love to hear his voice again and see his ready smile.
Fair winds Mike....

Long time no news!!! Well, that is not exactly true. We have been so busy with our loyal clients and making new friends that a news update simply fell through the dock !
We have had a few changes at Maritime and the Skunk Fleet is still growing and glowing. Marianne Silva put her deck shoes under the Accounting desk and we are glad to have her keeping the Skunk Bucks in order.
Our best to all the area boaters and we will see you at Red Fish Island. Our pals at the Galveston Bay Foundation plan another concert there this fall. And, by the way, a million thanks to Angie at the Freeport Municipal Marina for hospitality and a true commitment to Pump Don't Dump. Keep up the great work !
TMCA off to Double Bayou...hope to see you there.....

You may have even had rain by now !!! I know it has been hot and dry, but not as hot as your Skunk Team's deals...discounts for the asking and free Tank Tamer for referrals...ask at the office on Pier 1 in Watergate or just call 281-334-5978....tell 'em Autie said give you something free !!! Watch the mailbox for our Customer Satisfaction Survey...we may have slipped on pleasing you, but the commitment is still there and we are going to make you happy !!! Seems many of our clients didn't know we do repairs, pump outs, pump out stations and chemicals...well, WE DO !! Give us a chance to prove we care.

You people are terrific !!! Over $700 raised to donate to move the dental equipment down to Honduras. Those kids benefit from some great volunteer doctors like Dr. M. Jolly Johnson, DDS and many from Baylor Medical. Thanks to these geat folks and your generous donations for the Great Food at the Flea Market, many happy smiles will ensue. When in mainland Honduras late this year you may find the clinic in operation. Keep smiling....
Flea Market was attended lightly, but the items changed hands just the same and you guys were able to keep the free beer going like never before! We are grateful for your attendance, the super work done by the Skunk Cooking Team and our Elk friends. More next year we hope as the Flea Market turns 19 and Maritime Sanitation turns 20.
Autie and Janie McVicker and the whole Skunk Team say THANKS !!
1992-2012 sounds like 20 years of wee wee and woo woo ? Yep.
