BTW, delivery went well. Great adventure. Love one-way trips!

165 miles of ICW in a mostly northerly direction. Predominate summer winds are from the SW and we figured cakewalk earlier, but tropical storm heading up the coast spun us northerlies from the Friday evening we left until Sunday evening when we arrived at destination.

Still, it was great fun!

Have some interesting video of motoring to windward directly against chop in the Alligator River. Bashing, pitching, into chop with a period of about 1.5 seconds, which we did for a couple hours Saturday afternoon. I guess the chop could be called moderate, since we only took green water over the bow occasionally, but in a 27' cruiser racer, it was quite a ride.
