Just checked your location. Looks like you are in about the same spot that we have anchored. There just aren't many good anchoring spots on Hawk channel between Biscayne Bay and Marathon.

We were pretty close to each other. When you were in No Name we were anchored behind Key Biscayne up near the yacht club. We had anchored in Blackwater Sound the night before. Chuck

Well folks I think this is it for the southing. In Marathon now and no real desire for the craziness of Key West. I will start the thread back up when I start heading North. I hope all have enjoyed the trip. Stay warm

Well it's time to head north. The trip starts at first light. I'm solo on this leg as the kids are in school now. The final destination is Boothbay Maine with a layover in Deltaville, VA for a few weeks. I hope to mostly run outside but I'll be limited by the quality of my rest times. The pics are from our slip and snorkeling. As before you can track me on marinetraffic.com search "grace" MMSI 913030566

That's a long haul solo. Wish I was there to crew for you.

Hope the trip goes well. I'll be living it vicariously online.
