We finally broke loose from Marathon and are now in Key Biscayne. We will hang in in Biscayne Bay until the next weather window. We thought about Friday but it's only a one day window. Maybe next week some time. It's all part of the adventure. Chuck

Chuck,
Where in Marathon were you? If you were outside we would have passed today. If your in no name the Whitby 42 ketch "Red Ranger" is crossing tomorrow. It's the last good window for sometime.

We left Marathon a couple of days ago. We were anchored off of Key Biscayne near the Yacht Club. We moved to Crandon today to wash the salt off and do a few chores. I don't like a one day window and we missed today. Last time we raced a front across the Gulf Stream, we lost the race. Not in this trawler. We were on a mooring in Marathon and at the Boat Yard for while getting a tank replaced. There is always another window. Chuck

What tank did you need to replace?

Good to hear you're on the move and ready for the crossing, Capn Chuck. Hope your holding pattern in Key Biscayne is brief but enjoyable.

Chuck,....sorry I'm not at home in Key Biscayne to invite you over. I'm still up here in Stuart on the hard, staying aboard. Our old house is on a small cove just inside Pines Canal (last entrance before you get to No-Name Harbor. Holding is about the same as No-Name, and it's very protected. Depth is min. 7.5 in just about the whole cove. Catch you next time.

Al, we had to replace the starboard water tank. We posted about it on our blog. healhustler, we might look at the basin you mentioned when we stage to head offshore. Forecast for the next 5 days doesn't look promising. Chuck
