Key West will be a great improvement but you'll be surprised at how cold it can get, even there, in January. Endurable however. Our cruising plans are kind of up in the air this season but we may try to make a run down to the Keys if we can get a few daze and a weather window between fronts. It takes use about 30 hours to make Key West with any decent wind. We'll let you know, if so. (Or we may just drive down.) In any case, be sure to get together with Brian while you're there. He's not a bad sort and you'll like his boys.

How did the trip north from Cumana go? I kind of expected you to shoot up to the Caymans and zoom around the west end of Cuba and show up at our marina (we kept a couple of cold and frosties for you just in case). Did you beat all the way back to the windwards? (Damn fool if so, you know you're taking you life in your hands with those darned Bendy Toes.) Were the Natives civil in New York et al? (Sometimes folks north of the Chesapeake can get pretty crusty.)

N'any case, we're happy to know you're well and healthy and that Sea Life is hanging in for you. (Hopefully all's well with Nic too, where ever, eh?)

Cheers!

Hey Scott,

Come to the TOrtugas with us! Leaving circa Nov 26th. I am getting a bunch of boats from the Harborage to go. Captain's meeting this Sunday at the lounge. You interested?

Everyone else is invited too. If you have never been, I believe it is the most beautiful place in the US (excluding PNW which has its own beauty but different).

Brian
