Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoob,
I have been amazed by the people on this forum, they have done everything for you, except sail the boat. I was frankly waiting for that to be offered. If you think you have done this yourself your sadly mistaken. Without these people I bet you would have tried the outside route

Aw crap. We were on the boat for the first attempt but after the second abort gave up. Missed it. Night launches are great.

When I first came upon this site I was bewildered by a problem I was having with my Atomic 4.
I could not believe the number of people who jumped in with helpful advice. They helped me tremendously and walked me through what I needed to do. I had know idea that there were groups like this with such an incredible amount of knowledge and so willing to help.

Scoobert. you disparage that and that is sad.

"So, when was the last time you had sex?"

"Oh, about 1958."

"Man, that's a long time!"
