Coming into Mobile. I was a little nervious coming across the shoals to get into the shipping channel. But I'm in now.

I stayed at the Fairhope yacht club for two days. I can't say enough about the hospitality. I felt like family. I think when I decide what I'm doing part of it will be to become a yacht club member. It's also a great place for my motor boat with all those lighting rods.

About three years ago I helped a gut move a 36 ft sailboat from Pensacola to Slidel,La.We stayed offshore until Mobile Bay and then came in on the Mobile Ship Channel .It was not pretty.I wish we would have taken the ICW all the way.Then we tried to anchor in Mobile Bay .No luck there.Live and learn.
We are wanting to make that trip down to Orange Beach area from Tennessee someday. We just did a trip this past week from Paris Landing to Green Turtle Bay.Thanks for posting your trip.I'll be checking in everyday.

David, wish I had known that you were at Fairhope YC. I would have had you say hello to John Adams. Maybe you met him around the bar. He is a very good mechanic, and good guy.

Sounds familiar. I'm terrible with names. They were a great bunch of guys. I met a few on Tuesday they met for coffee to share their knowledge or is it wisdom when your a little older. I know it gets mixed with a little bull along the way.
