I'll keep you guys foremost in mind as "zero hour" approaches. I expect it most likely be early in the new year. Thanks.

Yeah N winds suck. Were going to try and goto Bimini for Xmas break and stay at a family members newly built house, not sure if we're going stay through the new year.

Yeah, why not? A cruising club might be just the ticket to get us to untie a bit more often. All I have to do is to stop working on my boat and begin enjoying my boat. I'm on the hard in Indiantown right now, but should be back in Longboat Key around the middle of Nov. I'll send you my info.

coolbeans and guys

I did not know about the MTOA ( and here I thought I knew everything). Your right their symbol is the turtle....we are changes ours to the Manatee...also very slow.

The southwest florida group of the MTOA may be just what I'm looking for.

8-10 mph is just a guide line....you can go as slow as you want and meet up with the rest at the marina...lead boat will stay in communication on channel #68.

Also consider some great anchorages,
Longboat key, on the northern end
Otter Key, near St Armands Circle, Sarasota
Pelican Bay, Cayo Costa
Desoto Pt on the Manatee River

Could join you next year.

We normally cruise at 8 kts but can do 18 and will act as pathfinder if needed.

You still going to be there in December when I come through? Isn't that where I left you last time.

True....I just liked it there so much. I'd probably been gone if not for so much rain. Doing bottom again after only a year. Why are you waiting so late to start down? When is the engine switch planned?

Wifey B: I hate to ask this question but when you're saying "Slow Cruisers" I do hope you're referring to the speed of the boats and not the mental quickness of the captain.....?

Wifey B: Perhaps I wasn't the first one here to think of it...just hubby wasn't about to type it. Basically he just said he wasn't sure one would want to be called a Slow Cruiser.

Started in June and hope to be done by Turkey day. Paint job, engine swap, and overhaul / service of every system on the boat. Will post pics when it's done.
