Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.
Sorry to hear about Sailrite closing in Annapolis. The guy that managed it was a liveabord there (at least that's what he told me in 2007) .
The 16th (yesterday) , didn't go as previously intentioned as I awoke at 4am to the reallization that I had failed to complete a few items on my list that must be completed prior to stepping the mast. Namely, replacing my aged and yellowed anchor light and replacing the spreader boots. No sense in getting a new main if just to tear it up on the spreaders.
So, I got to familiarize myself w/ CDTA public transportation. Word to the wise, always stipulate whether you wish to purchase an all day or one way ticket when boarding. Or, you get to try a second time at full price (%@*)
Nothing I like better that paying twice!
On a good note I managed to get it all done and even treat myself to a new NYC Approach chart.
So, scene 2 take 2 , departure for Castleton today. Really , TODAY, I'm going, gotta get outta here, people are beginning to greet me by name in the morning!
Wish me luck
