How many miles did you figure from Bradenton to home? I see you also went past 1000 posts on TF during the trip. You've braved massive flood current at the Mississippi, a risky Gulf crossing, huge passing ship wakes, illegal moorings, gator infested waterways, mechanical breakdowns, wild lightning storms, eye burning head odor, mosquito infested swamp anchorages, midnight boat repairs, commercial lock intimidation, barge abuse.....you name it. You've turned into a Captain, Bill!

I've put 270 hours on the boat. I don't know how many miles that translates into. Like a million I think.

This is what I look like now

This may be an appropriate thread to pick up on. Had a little misfortune yesterday - it appears that I snapped the transmission cable. Anyone here ever replace a trans cable on an Albin 36 D/C?
