I was actually and yes they are progressive lenses.
There was a little raised edge to the cement that I didnít see and hit it at just the right spot.

Ahhh, the lovely low tide ramps of Turtle Cove. Add that to the floating docks and it's a great ride.

I slipped down the same dock last summer and my foot hit the cleat on the dock and I wound up in the water. Flip flops or boat shoes would not have made a difference - I was barefooted!

Based upon your propensity to fall, how did you live this long. LOL

Side note: Yesterday, over 50 messages here and about 30 pieces of SPAM. If I could remember 1/2 of what I have learned here, I would be happy.
Those "ladies", advertising in the SPAM, will just have to wait longer. LOL

They really are very nice. Thank goodness they were here and helped us with lines because the way this is set up it was just about impossible for me to do. I couldnít get off the boat

She even offered to drive us to the store or wherever today. I think theyíre liveaboards. They have a vehicle here.
I sure hope itís warmer by the time we get home. This cold is for the birds! Itís almost that cold here this morning. At least the wind has died down considerably.

Hereís pics of the casualty from yesterday. Itís still there cause I donít have a way to clean it up currently. Thankfully thatís the guest head.
The port light up above has a small leak thatís apparently been leaking for a loooong time. The bottom of the cabinet door beneath it and just to the left of where this piece was is rotted. We knew about this and plan to have all of the portlights re-seated and sealed when we get home. The piece that fell had come off during the survey but the seller said he had it fixed.

Of course he told you he fixed it. He did not say, he fixed properly.

You are engaged in a shake down cruise... That's what it is is all about it.

Yep, if thatís the worst that happens, Iíll be happy.

I did find the source of the other leak yesterday. Itís the middle windshield. David is going to examine it today. Itís not a bad leak so it can wait until we can get home.

We are going to hang out here until we have a weather window to cross the gulf. That’s looking right now to be Thursday. Depending on how we feel, we will either go to apalachicola or on to Panama City.

Ya gonna have perfect weather and sea conditions starting at 8:00am Thursday all the way through to Panama City. After Panama I would still run outside taking advantage of calm seas (less than 2ft!). Come in at Gulfport, fuel up, then make your last run inside to the rigolettes. Rain (30%) becomes an issue Friday into Saturday afternoon. Gonna get up into the 80s this weekend! Winds Friday and Sat in the Sound and lake shows 10-15kts; very doable in your big boat! Have fun!

Since u mentioned you were in some sloppy weather it might be smart to check the fuel filters since you have some downtime. If you have redundant filter setup I would go ahead and swap to clean one and replace the used one. Donít forget the genset, although not really needed for the crossing. We did the dog island trip from gulf breeze last spring break. It was a good trip! We actually doglegged to port st Joe on the return. Totally worth it. The forecast looks best for Thursday! Good luck.

Well you got to practice with your first aid kit.

A broken mirror.....mmmmmmm Oh I'm not superstitious...

We all have had falls and scrapes. How many of us Taiwanese tubs have bounced down the steps to the salon or the galley...

We are at Rust Bellies restaurant. It was the closest thing we found with signs of life. We got here just in time to be seated before they closed. The walk here was sooooo cold.


Doesnít your boat have an side helm station? If you were inside you would be toasty warm. Staying out in the elements is sailor thinking.

Nah... I just tell my patients they are clumsy. If sailors can wear progressives while on the foredeck, a powerboater should be able to wear progressives while walking. ;-)

That is a good suggestion unless they have some good information on the condition of the fuel tanks. With a dual filter setup, it would be a matter of 5 minutes to change the old filter. Of course that doesnít count the 40 minutes trying to find the replacement filter in the spares on a boat that is new to them.
