I read your messages looking for someone to bring your boat up from Southport to the Solomons.
Brief history: I have sailed the ICW from Maine to FL for the past thirty five years. I have been up and down more than a dozen times. I have had six boats, from a 27 ODay to my most recent which was a Chuck Paine designed/Kanter Yachts built '64. You can find it on Chuck's website under his Bermuda Series.
At the moment I am boatless. I sold Dawnbreaker about a year ago. I am missing the waterway, I am more or less retired (still doing a little consulting), and I might be willing to do this just for the fun or it.
However, I would only do it if the boat is in good shape. There are usually some maintenance issues on a trip like this, particularly if the boat has been sailed much recently, which sounds like the case. I do most of my own maintenance, but I would not look forward to being stuck in the waterway with mechanical problems.
If you are interested, email me at... oops, it won't let me post my email address. OK, just Google Lawrence M. Miller and you will find my website and email address.
