Ahoy all, from Nashville....Tn not Ga. Just had to do that.
Well I am about cured up from my mishap in Green Turtle. When I was over worked and tired to the bone, raising anchor (manual) and the ole heart attack came on fast and furious. Been landlocked for a year now
and this spring is time to get the ole barge down the Tn River, TnTom
to the gulf cost for some much needed fun in the sun and surf/sail.
I do have one ? though. Where might I find a crew person to help me
cruise down the river system to Ft Walton beach Fl.
Happy Sailing

Dennis

Hi Dennis,

There is a section on this forum to post for crew members. Might give that a try.

I had the opportunity to visit Green Turtle Bay last year in early September. Looks like a great place to keep a boat.
Kind regards,

When I was there in green turtle I was too tired to notice anything. Then the big one hit and I hit the water. The one thing I remember the most is the USCG helo
hovering over me and some wonderful courageous person jumping into the sea to get me into the basket and take me to the hospital in Miami. These people do not get enough money or credit for what they do.

I sing their praises each time I meet them. Coasties are A O K in my book.
