Thinking about you down there, Janice. Stay warm. The TowBoat U.S. guy in Carrabelle is a really nice guy. Once we went aground at a low tide coming into the Carrabelle River (too close to the edge of the channel) and called him to get us off. He was apologetic and said that he was on a run over to Apalachicola and would get to us as soon as he possibly could. He guessed an hour, but it was three hours. The Apalachicola job turned out to be a bear! He finally got there and pulled us off, but when I offered him my TowBoat U.S card he said that it was a freebie because it took so long for him to get to me. Only in the rural south . . . :-)
