Thanks Dave, it was great to finally meet you! Definitely a good conversation about your experiences on the Loop.

Glad life and vessel are going good for you. I did sell my 50' Cherubini in Dec. at Thunderbolt Marina to a couple from Atlanta area. They are putting a lot of time and upgrading all systems. Glad to see her in good hands. The bottom zinc in my heat exchanger had broken off and wedged across water outlet, so in the last 3-400 RPM prior to WOT she would over heat. A Tech from Williams Company did great job finding and fixing. Starting to look for 36' GB now. Enjoy the warmth. Ron T.

Crossing St. John's is interesting. Looking straight into the south side it is real apparent. Looking across...not so--- especially when there is a lot of traffic.

Have fun!

And so it begins again. Left Crisfield, MD this morning at 4 am in route to Fort Myers, FL. With hurricane Matthew little more than a week past, thought I would add some more pictures to this thread to highlight sites along the way and maybe some of the effects of the hurricane. Should be in Norfolk this afternoon and have dinner with TF friends. Unfortunately, Dismal Swamp canal is still closed due to high water levels and possibly downed trees in the water way. So there will be some new pics from the Albemarle and Chesapeake canal. Stay tuned.

Ted

A full moon on a clear sky to the West. Tough way to start the cruise!

You're missing some of the best cruising on the Chessie. The Rappahannock and York rivers especially this time of year are golden - literally. I know not everyone can be retired.

Be prepared for Stuart and the Okeechobee waterway, Ted. Due to the lake dumping, your gonna run into lots of Green Tide on the East side and we've got plenty of symtomatic fish kills occurring over here on the Gulf side resulting from sewage dumping. Brown Tide or Red tide blooms could be on the rise again. Anyway, welcome back to paradise!

Heck, we have clear blue and 72 here in Jersey.....painting decks today...

January down there is the place to be....up here in Sept and the first half of Oct is the place to be...

It is the travel at somewhere between walking and slow biking speed that gets old if you don't have lots of good stops planned...

Wifey B: 84 degrees here today and 93 degrees tomorrow. No, not South Florida. In St. Louis. Can you believe this is October. So nice. Everyone warned how frigid and awful October would be. Well, we did have one cold day and two nights on the Illinois River, but otherwise great.

Yes it's very nice on the Chesapeake this time of year. Went up the Pocomoke river Wednesday and Thursday to Snow Hill. Had a great; lots of good kayaking up there. Will put up a thread about it when I get a blow day.

The joys of boat ownership. I know; I put 18 months in refitting mine.

All that will be cleared up and gone before I get there.

There is a free dock between the lock and the bridge that filled just before I arrived. Boatpocker was very generous and allowed me to raft off Dirt Free (a very nice boat ). Caught up with Hmason and had a nice dinner together. It seems that hardly a day goes by that you don't see someone from TF on the AICW.
