That will result in bigger trips without proper experience..

Since we are in the prediction business here is mine. Scoob and co will be fine but will be lucky to make it to Ft Pierce before time runs out.

Not due to failures in seamanship but there are so many cool places to stop in on the way. Savannah, Charleston, St Augustine and many, many little ports that you can burn time walking and seeing the sights.

Keep us posted, sounds like a fun trip.

The person (sister in law) that was going to stay 8-10 days has decided to remain with us for at least 2 months, lol.

Scoobert, if I understood your blog correctly, you recently lost a child? Very sorry if that's the case. If not, what gives with that post?

Hey Scoobert, Your boat is documented I recall. Have you updated the documentation. I think you can get a hefty fine and be ordered to stop if you have not updated it.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. As a parent, I can only imagine how painful this time must be. And I can also imagine what a relief it must be to embark on a journey that others think is careless but must seem to you and your family as a release and a desire to make the world different. Because for you, it will never be the same. Sometimes, you just have to do it.

Fair winds and safe journey.

I have checked out the blog and hope you can keep it updated as you progress southward. I looked through the pics and the boat looks quite spacious (for a boat). I don't suppose you have an original brochure copy or something that shows the floor plan?
Good luck on the trip and I hope it does you well in trying to cope with the loss of your son..as if anything could. :(

We will keep the blog up to date. For sure.
And thanks

We have tried to contact tayana, with no luck. There were only 5 made.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL
 
Have some empathy, Roger. USNews says the four vessels were stranded, which would suggest a major geological event, perhaps the largest undersea volcano ever to occur off the eastern US, as the cause.

A vessel can only be stranded when it is driven ashore, and with hundreds of miles of new land being pushed up out there, you can bet those poor sailors were taken unaware.

Unless USNews maybe picked the wrong word out of the random sailing hat?

Giving him gruff earlier when he was planning a voyage outside the gulf stream was one thing, but it seems like he's reasonable enough to have taken the advice and replotted the course for the standard jaunt down the coast, ducking inside of Hatteras.

Give the guy a break, or at least constructive criticism.

This. Not easy being in his shoes right about now.
