Sorry I didn't respond sooner, been down washing and polishing the boat.

If you need another oven, mine is smaller but available, probably within crawling distance.

We are leaving Monday too. Will have the sea anchor out and operating on one engine slipping it in and out of gear to slow down enough, plus long lunches. Will be anchored Tuesday night same place as last year.

The weather forecast is looking good with daytime temps in the 80s and, given the cast of characters coming, it should be a great weekend.

See everyone soon.
Why are you starting so late, Larry? I thought naptime was over at 3PM? Planning a long dog walk?

Sure wish I was gonna be there...

Great! I'll come by and wake you in the morning.



I made a funny! A massive wake from a 7 knot boat.

Ted. Your expecting a big wind at your stern and a lot of current pushing you to make 7 knots.

Since grabbing parking is an issue I think I will visit Harbortown Marina Tuesday afternoon after Titusville. Any of you folks do extended stays at either of those marinas? Trying to identify central coast marinas that would be nice to stay at for a month or longer if I 'escape' the Chesapeake next winter. Lots of amusement to be had in places like Annapolis and Norfolk to help offset the chill. Harbortown looks nice online but maybe not as entertaining as the city marina and the farmers market should offset the grocery being further away....

Check out Sunset Bay in Stuart, I’ve always enjoyed my stays there.

Thanks, I forgot I wanted to make a stop there. Stuart is a bit further south but felt like it had more of a cruising community than the other east coast locations I have visited north of the keys. Having the canal intersect there helps its cause a bit.

I just went by Telemar Marina near Melbourne yesterday to check on long term availability. Fairly inexpensive but the price jumps up quite a bit for liveaboards. A really good hurricane hole near Patrick AFB that seems to have some space for a few boats. Mixed reviews on AC.

Might be a good idea to provide a map of the various attendees in the marina. My wandering around has been limited since I am berthed on the open road area with no gate, I havenít been provided with a gate code to walk the docks.

I’m not there yet so I have no code. However I think Don and Larry could be there. No problem in finding Gotcha it is supposed to be birthed near Slow Hand so just follow the glowing boat.

Enjoy folks. Wish we could make it this year. Maybe next God willing.

We are off to the Miami show tomorrow and a central America/Panama Canal cruise afterwards on Monday.

It sucks but someone has to do it!

We will then be running down to Lake Worth Inlet for a crossing around the 15/16th March if anyone is around. Will stage at Sailfish.

Great song. THAT made me laugh out loud!

Now I'll have that thing bouncing around my head for the next few hours, days or weeks!

Thanks a lot, Ted!! I'm stealing this for my FB page.
