Finally, things are coming together

Talked to my brother Clint in Alaska today, and I now have two crew for the end of April for a Gulf crossing to Florida. Having done many a canoe adventure, and other activities with both of them, I can shove off with a known quanity for crew. Though Kevin doesn't have much experience sailing, and only one leg, he is intelligent, and has a good grasp of how things work. Clint, on the other hand, has offshore experience, as well as great mechanical skills.

All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the way it's working out. Plus, I have a month to shakedown all the changes I've made, as well as get some more miles under my belt. Dang, it's great to finally have something more definite to plan around.

I figure we can make the offshore run to Port Aransas for a crew shakedown, then head across along the 28th parallel and make for the Dry Tortugas. Makes me glad I didn't push on back in November.
