Re: Is Anyone Else Scared?

The only problem you have is feeling rushed by your schedule.

Hook the tarpon and have some fun playing him. He will leave when you cut the leader to release him. Wait for the rain to stop so visibility under water improves. Replace the zinc and forget about cleaning the hull. Do it another day when you have nothing else to do. Your hull speed doesn't really matter. You are not going racing. You already have the toughest part of the journey behind you. YOU HAVE THE BOAT!

Relax and enjoy!
