What slip did you have in Del Ray, we are in 38 River. Enjoy your trip and if you come back to Del Ray lets us know. We have boaters shrimp night at Morton's on Thur.

We spent several days at St Andrews Marina then headed on to Apalachicola. We stayed at Scipio Creek Marina which is under new management they are doing lots of work there the restaurant is no open yet ships store quite well stocked, l think it wi) turn out well. Friends from Bradenton drove up we had a good visit.
On Thursday made the trip up the ICW to Gulf County Canal down to Port St Joe where we are now, Tuesday we plan to head back to Louisiana, slowly, as usual. We have to be home first part of May for a weeek or so, so wherever we are at that time we'll leave the boat rent a car and drive home. After a week or so at home we'll drive back to the boat and carry on our trip.

We had planned to leave the boat in Gulfport then drive home to return after a week or so and carry on westward. But we decided to just carry on back to Houma in the boat. So, today we made the trip from GPT to Seabrook Marina in N. O. Tomorrow we will battle the locks and the swollen Mississippi River and hopefully arrive back in Houma Tuesday evening if not Wed.

Steve why not anchor out in the lake and watch the Tickfaw 200 this weekend?
Glad you have made it back and hope you enjoyed the trip

We left Seabrook Marina in New Orleans at 8 AM Tuesday we experienced several delays: RR bridges, locks, and travelling up the swollen Mississippi but finally tied up at the bulkhead at Boomtown Casino at 5 PM. 16 miles in 9 hours!! the longest delay was at Industrial Lock, + 3 hours.
We overnighted at the Bulkhead of Boomtown Casino and Wednesday had a good day to cruise on to Houma where we arrived at 3:30 PM.
All in all a very nice trip, just more windy days than we would have liked!

Yes, here is a site I use they are predicting good sea conditions for several days, http://www.stormsurf.com/locals/tampa.shtml
click on the "Gulf of Mexico - Sea Height" icon under the opening chart.
Where are you staying in Apalachicola? I hope we'll see you out on the water one of these days.
Good Trip!

I use Windytv for same info. Will check out stormsurf though. Thanks.
I am at the public dock. No electric, water or pump out but I donít need any of that. Police chief/harbormaster came by this ,owning. We had nice chat. Said no charge as we spent money in town. Definitely Old Florida here, but charming. Met nice folks in town. Heading out at 4pm. 18 hours from here to Anclote Key.
