Southbound II

While doing a delivery last week one of the crew was saying that Herb from Southbound II was retiring, the ssb on board didn't work so I couldn't confirm this, does anybody have any info? I'll be taking our boat south this fall and it sure would be nice to check in with Herb along the way.

Herb passed a couple of years ago. Southbound II is carried on by another forecaster. Freq's and time are still the same.

I don’t think (hope) he's passed on.
You might want to ask Herb about his plans.
