My wife and I still work, but I am getting closer to pulling the rip cord and becoming a full time boat hobo. This Summer I plan on doing a month at our offshore islands. In the water, getting wet is the primary focus.

SWFL to Ottawa Canada via ICW, Hudson River, Erie Canal and Rideau Canal, then back via Champlain Canal. Leaving Friday if the enclosure is done. Kind of a half Great Loop but 4500ish miles.

Wifey B: There are actually quite a few sites targeting the singles crowd.

Boating Friends Date - Free Dating for Single Sailors & Boaters

https://boatingpassions.com/

Boaters Dating - Where Boater Singles & Boating Loving Singles Meet Online!

I know nothing about any of these, but clearly there are a lot of boaters seeking partners.

There is a real possibility with all the flooding on the rivers. About all of the ones Iíam familiar with that any long distance cruising will start after the middle of the year.

Last year I was back onboard the boat in mid February. This year Iíam still waiting for the flood waters to recede. The main problem is the marina lost water service because of construction on a new bridge across the river. The repairs canít start until the water drops to 18í on the gauge, 21.5í now. It is projected to drop to 20í on April 19th. I have 3 or 4 projects to do that should of been finished or well on the way by now.

Wifey B: Tomorrow we start north on our first major cruise of the year although we've put many miles on in FL and the Bahamas.

We're so looking forward to it as other things became priority and we didn't get to go to the Caribbean. Well, went for a week, but not on our boat. Will spend some time in SC and NC and then later to the Chesapeake. We're all so happy it's about to start. You'd think as much as we've cruised we wouldn't miss it so and wouldn't be so excited, but you'd be wrong.

Wifey B i believe one reason Iíam always excited to get back on the boat is the time spent away in the winter. Iíve always thought I was better off than boaters on the Great Lakes because I started a couple of months sooner than them. This year they can laugh at me still waiting. Have a great season.
