Lovely weather has returned!

Once again, our temperatures are in the very 70's and the backyard flora doth rejoice.  I do dig the Florida winter, I do!

This is telling me that in thirty days hence, I shall freeze as the Barco departs for the Keys. It is always that way but we have a generator and heat with plenty of jackets, so don't worry about us.

Monday we bring the Barco for some annual maintenance which includes the bottom. Engines will have all fluids and filters removed and replaced and I shall wax the hull myself! We should be back in the water by the next weekend and I will make the boat ready for voyaging, if that's what you call a twelve hundred mile journey. Think of it more as a road trip. Only slower. Walking slow.

Have a fine weekend!

Enjoy the 'trip' what ever you may call it! A slow boat to the Keys is NOT a bad way to spend a couple of weeks!!! Just watch out for the idjits down around Pt. Everglades!

Old NFO; Yeah, I am thinking about going offshore at Port Everglades and going direct to Stiltsville.
Thanks for stopping by!
