You won't have Chuck to kick around

We are out of here. Someone else will have to pose those controversial questions and bits of insight. I know you won't miss it since you can get back to discussing anchors and why your engine won't start but that is just they way it goes some times. Our departure date is Saturday or Sunday depending on when this south wind at 25 blows out since we are going south. If you really miss us we will be posting on our website regularly since we can post via our Winlink over the SSB. I hope our new WiFi set up works well, see the website for details, and if it does we will be able to drop by from time to time. Since we will be heading east along the Gulf ICWW the hotspots will be few and far between until we hit maybe the west Floriduh coast. Yes Floriduh we are coming. The plan at least today is to spend hurricane season in Beaufort SC then the Bahamas after the storms pass. It has been 8 years since we were there last. So you all have fun without us and we will stop by when we can. Meanwhile check the web site from time to time. See Ya Later.

Fair winds Chuck, see you in the Bahamas next fall/winter. We'll be crossing back to the States next week and then up to Fernandina Beach to store the boat for the summer.

Fair Winds Chuck..

Thanks for the heads up on the 2-way head set a few weeks ago. Will be heading down to BVI (Flying) on Tuesday, then hop on my boat for a couple of months or until the weather gets too worrisome.

We will look forward to your along the way post.
