It's hard to imagine the weather you are having when we are getting snow every few days. But being raised in south Florida I still remember. That's what I missed running a charter boat in Alaska was the water stuff, swimming,diving, wind surfing and all the other stuff in warm water. Sounds like you had to do a lot of work on the Shannon. Did you do all that work where you bought it prior to taking it south. Seems like. Ft. Lauderdale would bea good place to refit a boat. I remember going to a big boat 2nd hand place that had all kinds of stuff, but as I remember nothing was cheap. No doubt labor is expensive there. Sounds like you all can do most everything yourself. Looking forward to more video on your page. Keep smilin.
