Florida to Texas June 2006

A correction has been made to this post
I will be heading to Texas in June sailing from Marathon Florida to Ft Meyers for a couple of days then to Clearwater and crossing to Panama City. Panama City to Pensecola To Mobile Bay. After that the marinas are for the most part destroyed until around Lake Charles Louisiana around 300 miles with no services. The boat is a Catalina 38 fast cruiser in good condition with an inverter to power the TV, DVD so we will have some movies and good lights. I only cary 46 gal of water and 65 gal fuel (Gasoline). Sailing will be the way to make the trip with no problems as far as fuel but we will motor in some places. I will be by myself and my wife will be driving out. I am a real sailor single handed quite a bit but I get tired and need a couple of hands a guy and girl are fine. No cocain on my boat never don't even think about it. No drunks drink if you want but no piss drunk fools. Post to this site and we will talk it over NO PAY just a chance to cruise a little you pay your way home on the Grey Dog or however. I am the captain and thats all I will say on that. I have many years on the ocean and I know what is happing as far as my boat. Weather sets in you still sail your watch while the rest of the crew rests. It will be fun with a little effort it should be a good trip. BYOB and any eating ashore is on your own tab. The trip will end in ether Rockport or Port Lavaca Texas.
