Hello from Justified!!

Hello all!

This is Walt and Deborah from Justified, docked at Cherokee Marina in Gallatin, TN. We've been dreaming of cruising the Great Loop for 2 years now. We recently bought a 42' Jefferson Sundeck and are in the process of upgrading the electronics, etc. we need for the Loop. We hope to begin our trip by the end of next year. My wife is retired and is ready to begin this adventure!!!

If anyone lives close to Portland, TN give us a shout!!!

Walt and Deborah Gunter

I think the TN River is the perfect place to start the loop. You can start in fall, enjoy all the southern areas, even take in the Bahamas, then head up the coast as spring comes reaching NY in early May. Then nearly five months later return to the TN River and on home.

Walt, welcome aboard TF. Got any pics of your new boat? We all like to see what other boats look like.
