Re: Real life playing out one of my ideas.
I'd love to try this (legally of course). With a 24 hr head start, I would leave my home port of Shell Point in Apalachee Bay. After 24 hrs, the govt could use all resources at its disposal to see if it could find me.
What strategies could you use? Certainly, I'd change the appearance and name on my boat. Around here there are not that many sailboats so hiding in plain site amongst other sailboats is not a good one.
I'd go West to Carabelle, drop my mast, go under the bridge and far up the New River where nothing else goes way up into the swamp and hide her under a camo net in the weeds.
Or, I'd also go west, go up Ocklocknee Bay, Droop my mast, go under the bridge and then up a slough I know about into a tiny lake where she could be hidden under some trees deep in the weeds under a camo net.
