Headed offshore. 180nm to the Cape Cod Canal. See you tomorrow morning. I have my two sons with me so this will be luxurious :-)

We'll keep an eye out or you. We should leave Deltaville around the 8th and plan to cruise 4 days on, 3 off (while I work a bit from the boat) as we head south.

I wonder how was the ride today with small craft advisory out in the ocean?

Be safe and enjoy the journey.

First pic is last night's sunset and then this am. 10 miles from the Cape Cod blight now. Pretty good sized beam seas at times. Autopilot turned itself off and we did big loops for a while before anyone noticed!#$&

Hey Daddyo, I'm rebuilding my boat and can't leave the dock so hitching along with you is going to help keep the blues away. I like your attitude and get it done boating style. Keep posting and safe boating all the way to you.

Any wonder why some people are confused when you tell them your boat is a trawler?

Not the prettiest but a sight for sore eyes after 28hrs in mostly beam seas. The CAPE COD CANAL

Udaman, Daddyo. A good call on the weather window. This stuff is not for amateurs. A novice out there today with mechanical problems could be in real trouble. It is a good thing you know your boat, and what to do if something goes wrong.

It is very interesting keeping up with your cruises. I like your cruising style.
