Good to hear from you

Hi John

I've been away from CF for a couple of months, glad to see you escaped FL! I'm now following you on Spot. Say hi to Mel.

Be safe, and fair winds

Jerry

They must have gone early. It looks like they're through already.

Thanks, John! The ideas will form the starting point If I can get it to taste anything like yours, I'll consider myself a total success story...

Enjoy the warm waters!

At times I have used a cheap jar of salsa added to the above.

At other times I used BOLD & SPICY A-1 sauce added to the above with a wee bit of LIQUID SMOKE.

A large bottle of cheap Italian Dressing from Wal-Mart, GREAT VALUE brand, at times.

I always let this set over night if not for several days, and then the coals are in-direct heat, not over the coals, and for about 6-8 hours. The last 2 hours are spent basting the meat in it's own juices mixed with what ever marinade used. I also check the meat hourly once it starts on the grill. OH, the last hour, or 30 minutes I leave the foil open while I baste, so the meat can get a wee bit of crisp on the top......i2f

What? No canal transit report. tsk tsk! It says clearly right here in your membership duties, that you are required to "report transit conditions for all major canal transits, ocean crossings, and restaurant visits."

I'll wait until you get settled in a HI wah yunn berth and comply, before reporting you.

Fair winds!

Good sailing. Hope the Pacific trade winds treat you better than the Caribbean.

Hmmmm. Looks like it's time to change the thread title again...

i2f in panama ===> i2f in the Pacific

Safe voyage, John. We'll be in Kailua all of July. Just south of Kaneohe Bay, which I think I recall you may be heading for. Hope to see you two!

Yes, Hud that would be good! The canal transit was a piece of cake. I was the center boat both days. The first day I did all the hp work working us through. I told the advisor the strbrd was dragging me down. He did nothing about, and Imagine got a workout. What, or who ever created us did a wonderful Job in Panama....it's pretty, and we will be back to spend time here.

The second day I told the advisor of this, and he had all three of us working together. Things went much smoother & easier for Imagine. There is an easterly wind right now about 10 knots. It would sure be lovely if it could hold for a couple of days, or more. Although Passage Weather shows a lot of motoring in my near future.

I am sure Melanie has posted up some pics of the Canal. I have been too busy to put much thought to typing. Getting to Hawaii should allow for all those thoughts, and more.......i2f

Glad to see you made it through the canal. Perhaps a wee bit of rest on the other side will do you good.
