Thanks, Blissboat. This was one of the reasons why we chose this marina. Frenchman Creek is very well protected. I wish I had power to read your and everyone else's messages at the time.

Don't get me started on Sprint! Cell communication was practically nonexistent for me. I am so glad I kept my landline!
