I actually wonder if it couldn't be done in one day if you're able to time things well, but best to plan on 2.
sounds like bringing her back is going to be a 4 person job. one to drive me up. one to accompany that person back. it's a long drive. i can't ask a friend to do it alone. lol. and one who either knows powerboats ( motor experience ) or knows the way, to go with me. i do know someone that does powerboats and he is a very good friend....

but i'm getting ahead of myself. i need to contact that marina at Hance's point, and go see the boat before i start planning bringing her back. of course, thinking ahead never hurt.
