First Adventure

We are bringing our “new to us” 2006 Mainship 400 from Grasonville, MD to Merritt Island, Fl on Monday. Flying in Friday morning and have a couple of days to outfit her and get the feel of her. Sure wish the weather would/will start to improve for our travels home!

Addendum,
Don't forget to sign up for Vessel Assist BEFORE your trip. Hopefully, you won't need it. Good luck and let us know how it went.

Cheers, Bill

Vessel Assist is similar to Tow Boat/US. You should check and make sure the coverage you have is good for the area you will be traveling. If so, you are good to go.

Vessel Assist is Boat US. West coast / east coast. The OP is well covered.

Heading South , when many folks are starting to head North may require VHF ,

Cell Phone and a really big loud horn to alert the bridge tender from his TV.

Bon Voyage!!!

If you already have Seatow you are good. Seatow covers any boat you own. Call them to confirm.
I have 4 boats in FL and NJ and one Seatow membership (gold) covers them all.
Enjoy the trip!

Thanks High!
