sent my son and I home and he stayed to clean out the tanks
before bringing the boat to Biloxi.
The stop-offs were fun: Gulfport FL mooring
field, Dunedin City Marina, Appalachicola, then Destin. Destins Harbor is insane with rookie boater traffic and obnoxious charter
boats, plus it was July 4th.
were also weak at their attachments and gave way when we tried to leave Destin, another reason to give in.
Weather was fine, didn't see too much marine
life, though. Can't wait to do it again!
