I'm with you. My spouse needs some counseling in this area - do you charge reasonable rates?

Love to anchor more than anything. I like hull slap. Been sleeping on boats since I was 2.

You are an owner, I presume? Who's cute family? Boat is different from your profile.

This looks like an engine room I saw at Trawlerfest in Baltimore, but it was a DeFever 49 pilot house. I love the vise to the left. Looks like a workshop. Decent headroom.

Headroom on mine is 5'-8". You can easily lower the center walk and get it over 6' if you wanted to. It's a great place to work. Even outboard of the engines is about two feet.

If you're still in the ditch when you leave Charleston, wave to my cousins on Goat Island. They're right across from Isle of Palms Marina.

Nice to watch your journey. Vicariously plotting your path as my own boat runs the same general speed and also powered by Lehman. "Pardon our stalking."

Just jealous because work schedule and family activities has slowed my maintenance schedule and on board time. Will miss your pass through the Neuse in NC, but maybe Tom and Bess will buy your beer at M&Ms for me.

Safe travels.
