I have very low tolerance for something like that. I would likely be on the bow saying something very sarcastic.

Tied up at the dock waiting to haul next week. I felt some vibration late in the day and when I was maneuvering at the dock I knew I had something on the wheel/wheels. I turned on the underwater lights of which I installed an additional two this last June that are facing down at the props. The lights work like a jewel and sure enough crab lines on both wheels.

Gotta admit, I'm sad to see the journey end. You've had an amazing adventure, and thank you for bringing all of us along!!

Thank you! It helped a lot during the long solo days to know others were along for the ride. Trust me the journey has not ended yet. Just a pit stop

Sounds like good luck on your part. That could of happened 300 miles up the road.

If you do get a chance to pull through Zimmerman's would you please send a picture of my boat? They say it has been hauled but for all I know they could be running charters on her!

Thanks for the picture tour.

Don't think that google maps are up to the minute, they don't even show the new houses around our marina that were built 5 years ago. It's a lot of world to map......

What might you say?

"Turn that smelly generator off?" Or "my wife loves to dive and owns a 3/4 inch auger?" Curious.

Your vessel is handling the beam seas off Cape Fear pretty well. I hope your ideal cruising RPM is around 2300. Where do you keep the Vermouth? The girls like the master shower, a lot.
