We have a busy day ahead of us today as we try and complete all the yard work. I hope it all gets done. It's going to be a busy boat. There isn't a single job that I would call 100% finished. A lot of wrap up to get done.
If today goes well, tomorrow morning I am coming home.
First leg... Stuart, FL to St. Augustine, FL.
We have a boat load. We have spent so much time in Florida lately that we have started to blend in with Kim and James's friends. So, it is only fitting that we load the boat for it's first journey north. All toll, there will be 8 of us on board. Kim and her friends will grab a room up in St. Aug as the captain and I will have an early morning as well make our way up to Charleston, SC.
I will try and make daily entries during the delivery to track the boat's progress.
Planned destinations on the Atlantic coast:
Stuart, FL (start)
St. Augustine, FL
Atlantic City, NJ
