Norfolk to the keys march 8th or so..!

If all goes well I am looking for help bringing my soon to be purchased Tartan 37 cb down the ditch to Key Largo. Looking for a ICW veteran with preference for sailboat guys/gals. 1979 boat, newly purchased anything can happen... Need someone easy going who can roll with the punches as they come! Will pay for food, fuel and ticket home on east coast. If properly credentialed, will pay $1000 for the trip. Male or female ok... No libs, no dictators, no drunks, could care less if you smoke. Whew.. Any interest? I am a 58 year old housebroken male that can cook, enjoys rum, cigars and wine with dinner? Or...old guard preppie seeks experienced ICW sailor for trip!

Re: Norfolk to the keys march 8th or so..!

Hey,

I have the spirit, sailing and navigation experience to join you on this trip and I definitely have an appreciation for the wine and cigars! I have that time frame open however I do lack the practical experience of that section of the ICW. But I am a marine navigation student come September and definitely could figure out the navigational aspects.

If you'd like to get in touch my number is 289-442-0365 or mostapiak at gmail.com

Cheers
Mark

Re: Norfolk to the keys march 8th or so..!

etbdjr, that sounds a lot like my planned route and time-frame. I have some git-readies yet to do, also. But 1st/2nd week of March could work, and maybe we can make a Two-Tartan Tag Team buddy boat trip down the ditch (say that three times fast).

I'll probably turn left about Miami though, and go catch some Bimini Bonefish.

I know the ditch between Norfolk and home fairly well, but further southward will be new water for me. Interested in a caravan?

Re: Norfolk to the keys march 8th or so..!

Now that's an idea! That way if I break down we can strip her for parts and continue on in your boat..! Let's keep in touch, that just might be fun and would save time with the bridges. Btw... Keys bonefish are well regarded too and we don't charge a 300 cruising permit! We are planning on going to the Abacos in May to get our full use of the permit.

I did the ICW from Norfolk to Charleston in 2012 on a Newport 27. I have more than 45 years of sailing experience did 2500 miles offshore last year. Let me know.

Cheers,

Scott

Re: Norfolk to the keys march 8th or so..!

ebtdjr...

I formally rescind my offer of help in the Northern latitudes... It appears as though you have several viable offers to help you with the crap part of the trip...

Let me know when you get to your destination, and I'll drop by for some of those cigars, Ahi, and rum....
