Greetings,
Mr, hm. Misfortunately, we can only wave as we pass by. Our plan is to meet our kids in Ft. Lauderdale for March break. Sooooo.....we're making time while we can. Tentative, we'll be in the Lake Worth area Friday night, possibly stay an extra night in the area to let the seas calm down (3'-5' with 6'ers mixed in for Saturday) and go outside to Ft. L (seas forecast 2'-3') on Sunday. Throw out a couple of lines and troll for dinner.

Where are you docking in Ft. Lauderdale? I know a spot in the middle river across from the Galleria Mall on Sunrise Blvd. that should be available long term, or perhaps short term as well, for a very good price if you're interested?

Greetings,
Update: While checking hydraulic steering fluid level this morning, discovered a blown hose on the ram. RATS! Weird fitting connecting hose to solid copper. Renting a car and going to Fort Pierce to try to get one made up. Yup, tried NAPA and a couple of other auto supply/hydraulic stores. They can't even identify what the fitting is so no joy in Mudville thus far. Hey, it's all good. We need mayonnaise anyway so the car WILL come in handy...At least it happened in the marina and NOT on the ICW. As I said, it's all good. So, Loggerheads @ Vero Beach for one more day. It's NOT snowing and I'm pretty sure I can rustle up some fresh shrimp. Jambalaya anyone?

"Jambalaya anyone?" Do you mean "Cajun Paella"?

Greetings,
Mr. 11. Thanks. But evidently, according to the young lady I was speaking to at Parker at 11:30hrs. they don't sell to the general public. Got them made in Fort Pierce (Turner Industrial). 2 for less than $40.

Wifey B: You're not general public. You're the famous (almost put infamous) RT Firefly. How dare they.

Greetings,
Arrived Palm Beach Gardens. Jambalaya on the menu (missed it last night working on steering-can't cook and bleed at the same time unless...well you can figure it out). Seas forecast to be 2'-3' so after a last minute confirmation tomorrow morning it looks like outside to Ft. Lauderdale.

Not...

I checked out one of last years trouble spots behind Wildwood NJ on Friday. On Saturday afternoon, there was trawler "Sage" sitting on the green side sandbar across from R 452. The section between old RR bridge at marker R 452A northbound through R446 is still narrow and shoaling. A new nun buoy R 446A was added but it is still shallow there. The channel of deep water between 6 and 12 ft MLLW runs in line from R452A>R452>G449>G445. Take it slow and you should be ok. BTW you will also find lots of small fishing boats all along the NJ ICW due to flounder season just opening on Friday.
