We're dangerously close to leaving this popsicle stand!

We are still in Marathon after 3 weeks waiting for parts to finish all of our last minute projects (wind vane installation, CNG to propane stove conversion, leaky bowsprit, new Skymate weather forecasting thingamabobby, etc.), and for a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream into the Bahamas. We have all developed allergies in the last few days. The wind has been blowing like stink for weeks now. Some mornings it feels like the movie "Ground Hog Day". We have been to almost every restaurant on the island and found that the Lobster Reuben at Keys Fisheries is our favorite. LIFE IS GOOD!


  1. I'm checking the website everyday. I saw your mom at my Grandma's memorial last week, and she gave me the website. Good Luck to you guys. I bought a 32 catalina last summer and love it. Can't wait to get it back in the water. I keep it out in Muskegon.

  2. hello everybody - i am closely following your trip and having been around the block myself, i might on and off give you some tips on where to go. so, why not start sailing over to havanna, i have a very nice friend over there, toni, he is the ex cuban heavy weight boxing champion of the olimpic games of 1980 and you could stay with him. you might need to zigzag your way into the havanna harbour though, us submarines might be on the outlook...
