HI I did the trip from galveston to mobile al off shore and the ditch all the way to panama
city, from there off shore to tampa then on to the key west
.the trip from galveston to mobile was a long 5 day haul, I did not get regular sleep during that time do to all the oil
riggs,I did the trip solo if you can get someone to go with you on that leg of the trip it will help you, it is a long one.and if you have leecks now after 5 days in any kind of weather you will have more. I have used and recomend having a few bottles of captain
tollys creeping grack cure on board it works great for port light leaks
untill you can rebed them later. bring warm cloths and have good rain gear
and rubber boots that you can wear winter socks in. to save money pick up boots from any good shrimp boat supply house there are several down were you are at. if you have any questions ask away I will check in bill.
