Shakedown Cruise Is Over

Well, we're back on the hard in Key West after our run from Louisiana to Cape Cod and back to Stock Island in 14 months. Been lots of fun. After a paint job and some retrofitting we'll be off again, hopefully to Central America.
Tao, you were right, this is a lot of boat for two old retired folks, but just about everything except barges gets out of our way and the bridges pop open like a Jack in the Box when I charge them. Can't have more fun than that.
Thanks for all the great advise and entertainment.
