Thanks for the replies so far. I want to break the trip into two days to make it easier on my son (and me) and to kind of learn the boat. I figure that on the way to the Isthmus I can play with all the electronics and other systems. Then I will have time to look up info and features that I was not able to figure out. The following morning I can try out my new knowledge on the second leg of the trip. I am excited and I hope the weather cooperates. I really have to vacate the current slip on the 27th, so a little luck with weather would be appreciated. I'll let you all know how it shakes out.
