Broke my arm in September, so we will be staying put here for some time. Hard to sit still while the flock moves through on their way.

We'll still be here when you pass through next time, and maybe we'll be ready to leave with you!

The two sailboats left for Apalach this morning, but there will be plenty of others. My experience, like Ralph's, is that boats rarely cross together and stay within VHF range. Different boat speeds, reaction to sea states, etc..

Check in when you get here and I'll give you some tips on routing.

I thought you were in PC, unless I'm mistaken I think the bridge at the end of the bay at PC is 50'.

DuPont bridge at Hwy 98

It is, I took the outside. Made it to st joe in no time at all. I may only stop to get fuel in Apalachicola tomorrow and keep pushing to dog island so I'm ready to leave Friday or Saturday.

Any recommendations for a marina in Apalachicola?

Water Street Hotel and Marina. Scipio Creek Marina is in pretty bad shape. Chuck
