Oh...I thought it was to cover the navigation errors associated with making a left turn out the gate to go north!

OK, I guess we all do things our own way.

Its not how I'd make the trip, but its doable.

680 miles at 8 knots is 85 hours.

To me, it sounds like you're on a schedule. We have all pushed our limits when on a schedule.

Not so much pushing as just getting the boat delivered to the Columbia, however safety is #1 with me, so if we have to seek a port and sit awhile, that is fine too.

Al, that is just plain mean man, just mean!!!!!
