Pulled into Jacksonville FL last night, Lambs Yacht Center. We did a 94 mile run from Hidden Harbor Yacht Club in Brunswick GA. Took a covered slip for the summer to protect the boat from the rain and sunlight. After changing the oil in the new Lehman and genset this morning, I did some maintenance catch up on deck. Ran out of steam about 4pm from the heat and humidity. Not used to it yet !
Too us 19 days to get here from Atlantic City NJ, 1103 miles. We stayed over one day at Charleston for some fun.
Will wash the boat really good tomorrow then leave Sat morning for our home in Cape Coral FL.

Packing sucks

It is a HUGE chore to pack up our things to take back to Cape Coral with us. I rented an SUV, then after we started packing, got scared. Upgraded to a LARGE SUV. I'm still scared it wont all fit. We have to take our clothes (all our summer clothes are here on the boat), all the medicine cabinet stuff, FOOD (all of the house spices are on the boat), laptops, luggage, and more and more that are essential summer stuff .

We have some potential buyers who have expressed a fair amount of interest. They are selling their sailboat and believe they may be getting a contract on it this week. If so, that may help link to our sale. We'll see.
As we used to say in the guvment, it aint over until its over.

I have spent some time visiting relatives who lived in the canals in Cape Coral and thought it an area that would be perfect for a 23' - 25' Searay, Trophy or similar with a head and good bimini. For 30 K or so you are in the game. We ran around down there in a 30' Trophy with twin Optimax 250s and could get to the Keys, Naples, Orlando etc quickly and safely. Something smaller would be easier to park in the driveway or nearby.

Don't give up on the water fun to be had in Cape Coral and Sanibel. Good luck with the move and sale. Hope to see you in the PNW someday, the standing offer remains.

Never out of boating

Already bought a little fishing boat first winter we moved to Cape Coral -

It will do 45 mph !
Been working like a slave the last two days to get the trawler cleaned up and spiffy clean for potential buyers to look at. My ad in Passagemaker came out this week.
Can any of you verify it? I dont get the magazine.
thanks
