Last Ride of the Barco Sin Vela II

Today, Palm Sunday 2019... The final voyage of the Barco Sin Vela II commences at 1100.

Our last mission is lead vessel for the local Blessing of the Fleet, hosted by the Palatka Yacht Club in conjunction with the Rat Island Yacht Club.

It has been a great ten years onboard Barco, we have traveled approximately six thousand miles, consumed about three thousand gallons of diesel on our voyages all of which were confined to the great state of Florida. We know every inch of the Intracoastal Waterway, North and South and the Mighty St Johns River as far as Lake Beresford and on out at the Mouth of the River at Mayport. Over the years, Barco has weathered many tropical storms and a couple of hurricanes with nary a scratch received from any of those events.

The decision to part with the Barco was due to a couple of circumstances, the main one being that our new home on the river takes a majority of our time to maintain and enjoy leaving the poor boat to sit quietly awaiting the next adventure in loneliness. When boats don't cruise they begin to fall apart so we decided to sell the Barco to our friend John, giving him a massive discount on the value of the vessel knowing he would love the boat as much as we did and that the Barco would journey again on the Florida waters as often as we used to do in the past.

So, today is the final foray onto the St Johns River and afterwards, we will raise a glass to the fun memories of our boat that we loved and also to the new memories that the Trawler "Simmering Waters" will surely deliver to her New Crew.

Stay Tuned for more...

P.S. Yours Truly will be involved with training the New Crew in the operation of the boat for many months until they achieve the skills necessary to traverse Florida Waters in safety. I expect to hear of some Bahama expeditions over the next couple of years!
