Reporting for sea duty south bound

After a bit of frustration and delays, it looks like we will finally head south Tuesday about mid day. For those inclined to enjoy from afar we have a couple of web sites to keep track of our voyage. The home page for the voyage is http://www.stateham.com/sunspotbaby/Cruise4.

To see position reports only the link is http://www.stateham.com/sunspotbaby/Cruise4/default.htm.

Being candy ass warm water sailors, unless conditions are favorable for shore we will do a lot of southing in the ICW. Given favorable conditions, we will jump out and make as many miles as possible.

We cannot participate as fully in this wonderful form since we will check in only when we have Wi-Fi and a little time.

Destination Bahamas and with a little luck Turks and Caicos and DR.

Just because we arenít stirring the pot periodically doesnít mean we arenít thinking of you.

George and the Admiral (Entlie on this forum)

Good luck George and Entlie. Enjoy yoursleves and let us know how things are going. I hope Sunspot Baby realizes you are holding your end of the bargain by heading South and holds up hers by not breaking down.

Our reports and photo pages are beginning to get some content. Find them at Cruise #4

We're having lots of fun and, as always, fixing things along the way. Recent issues are a clogged fuel line on the forward tank and a fuel leak on the aft one.

Now starboard engine starting system doesn't want to work unless I hot wire straight to the solenoid.

George
