Probably kind of strange but my favorite view on the boat is over the stern while underway. Always relaxes me for some reason.

Not with this old gal! Off Key Largo check Live Ships Map - AIS - Vessel Traffic and Positions

The skinny water is slowing me down almost a full knot. :-(

Must be your twin. Northbound ICW traffic is fairly brisk right now.

If I wasn't so busy right now, I'd say pick me up & I'd crew with you until Va.

Also Skinny refers to area not charted well and has shallows or sand bars around. Usually where you intend to go.

I didn't plan on 14 hours solo in tight, very tight channels and a foot or less of water under the keel on day one. Absolute dark arrival in a new to me anchorage, but no worries :-) glad I hadn't ate or drank much recently:-)

Did I see you? I hope I waved back. I'm sure like most of us I wave at most everyone I see, but I don't always see someone even if I'm looking in there direction. Speed limit? I only know one speed, really slow:-)
