Dave, glad to hear you're coming. It took me about 2 weeks underway from Crisfield, MD to Fort Pierce, FL at 7 knots in February 2016. Temperature can be a powerful motivator. It's about 950 nautical miles.

You'll make it! I'll come up and help if it looks like you won't be in time.

Dave, we might have reservations about you.

It will be fun if nothing else. Be prepared for A&O and F&G.

I don't know, the weight of yours and Dave's tickets could tip the boat over.

No, but with construction scheduled to be finished in the spring it’s a good bet that it won’t be operating.

I imagine when I get back to Annapolis after the first of January, Temperature will most certainly be a solid motivation. It might be an ice breaking venture, lol.

A&O and F&G

My dad used that expression every morning while in the Bahamas: Adventure & Opportunity and Fun & Games. He was an optimist and character but I think that saying fits in my life daily.

This gathering gets bigger every year and more fun.

Greetings,

I just spent the night on the Dude’s boat over in Stuart, and I can testify that the composting toilet in question has a pee pot capacity of exactly two 12 oz. rum & cokes, one 16 oz beer and a V8!

Senor RT. Don't let the bondage collar confuse you, it’s only for show. You’ll enjoy it eventually.

Larry are you sayin 30 revelers are in trouble (I guess the dude is really in trouble).

Dave, Norfolk is one long to two days of cruising from Annapolis depending on how you catch the tidal current. Once you clear the Alligator river bridge (2nd day out of Norfolk) ice issues and bridge freezing closed are over. Your next bridge that requires opening, will be below Morehead city. Water temperatures below Norfolk in the beginning of January should be above 40 degrees.

Ted I haven’t been on your site, myslowhand.com. Is that a porn site?
