Now Plan to be Active User
11/24/18 Been a member for a while. Now have 42' GB under contract subject to Surveys. Plan is to gain experience and some training at home port (Ocracoke Island, North Carolina) then off to the Abacos in November of 2019 for 6 months in the wet and then 6 months "on the hard" leaving her in the Abacos or Florida around Fort Pierce. Will return to Ocracoke from May to November. Have great expectations with concern being age (70) and wife's reluctance. May have started a little late?

GB = Grand Banks?
The only thing I know about the Grand Banks is all of them have way too much exterior teak

A fairly reasonable place to put her on the hard near Ft Pierce is at Indiantown Marina, west of the St Lucie locks, and about 20' above sea level.
They also have a hurricane haul out program.
