I hear you Larry. No telling what kind of swamp creature is out there.

Gators are attracted to the sound and ripples of the water trickling out of the air conditioning and generator through hulls. One night a few miles west of there I looked around with a light and 3 or 4 were next to the boat

They don't call it 'gumbo' for nothing. You going to fuel up at Shell Morgan?

I still have 6 days of fuel left. I will get some the next time I stop at a marina for the night.

I'm trying to talk my high school kid into jumping on the boat with me at Bolivar peninsula on Friday and making the trip back to Rockport.

If you would slow down a tad I could follow you as we plan on leaving Sunday

Slow down? That's the first time anyone has asked me to do that. 😄

Sounds fun but I need to get back. Wife said I've been playing around on the boat long enough.
