Haloo from mangomuffins!!

Hi there!!

We are the mangomuffins. We consist of 2 people (Wes and Lynne) and 5 cats (Ping Ping and her 4 babies - Yintang, Pteradactyl Baby, Egg-a-Mooby, and Spot) We have a '71 Albin Vega 27 that was given to us by Fred. Thanks Fred!!!
She is in pretty good shape except for a few scratches and a worn mains'l.
We are looking forward to some cruising and meeting all of you in person. Each and every single one of you!!
We currently reside in Charlotte Harbor, FL where we have an acupuncture practice, but are considering a move to the East coast of Fl.


Warm regards,

MM

Welcome, and I must say, mango muffins sound like they'd be tasty.

Welcome aboard MM:

My son is known as the Mango Kid. He loves them. If he cust one open you are lucky to get a piece. C Harbor is a beautiful spot. We charted a 32' boat out of Burnt Harbor Marina last year. enjoyed it. Welcome.

Hey! (This is Linda, the better half!) Elie has told me about you guys and we live in Jupiter. Our boat (yes, it will be ours tomorrow) is in Riviera Beach and will be being relocated to the Intracoastal in a few weeks to a mooring where we will spend all of our free time varnishing, fixing, outfitting, etc. Give us a buzz when you are local and we will hook you up.

congrats!!

Nothing like a new boat to make the day!!
Thanks for the offer... eta; ???.

Could be as soon as 2 weeks or 2 months. We are hoping for a "little" rain... just enough to fill the lake a bit... at least so's we can get across. Otherwise it's around the Cape of Keys for us. Good luck with the boat!!

regards,
MM

Kai,

The lake is Okeechobee in Florida. I was refefering to (Cape of the Keys) Florida Keys...easting around from west coast of florida to east coast. Not lake Gatun as opposed to Cape Horn... note our vessel...27'. I suppose, though that would be an adventure!! If we made that passage, we would expect 2 or 3 cold ones

MM

So...we get to buy you a beer!

We are closer than California and I would say this rain will make it a deal. We have a new boat on the hard at 44$ a day and we have Tropical Storm Berry. Great luck! We now know which portholes leak! (All of them!) OK, slight exaggeration. Half of them leak. We have some work to do. Looking forward to meeting you and introducing you to the boating community here.
