Glad you enjoyed the trip...did you leave the boat south or make the round trip?

Thanks folks...

Round trip - but mostly on the outside Northbound... while we enjoyed the trip south on the inside and highly recommend it to everyone, once was definitely enough!

We simply did not want to deal with all those bridges again, so we did a bunch of day hops and a couple of overnights and then went inside at Beaufort, NC… I'll be sure to fill in some details soon.

Till next time,
Carlos & Maria

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well, the travel logs are not quite up to par and you'll find huge time / distance gaps,
but it should do for a start ;-)

BTW, if you're in need of a good chuckle, read through the Maine log, we had so many mishaps it wasn't even funny... or was it!

Thanks again,

Check out the AGLCA lots of ICW info. Did you concider going north? take the New York canal system (600 miles of it) threw to the great lakes and then down to Chicargo to the ohio I (think) mississippi to the ten-tom to the gulf. You said you have the time. I am planing on the trip.

i am currently in long island sound- i plan to leave li sound after the newport boat show and go to the cheaspeake and then leave there after the annapolis boat show -
i can not south of morehead city until nov 1 - per my insurance company -
you may want to check with your insurance company as to hurricane insurance and limits of travel if any
i will be in new bern as quickly as i can get there and wait for nov 1 and a good weather window and hustle south before it gets really cold - headed to miami-
by the way you may want to spend some times in the keys as the bahamas can be a bit brutal with constant fronts in dec,jan and feb - and of course you have to get across the gulf stream and that might take some waiting
enjoy and congradulations in joining us

Yes, thanks for the great write-up and for not forgetting all of us at Sailnet! This is one time I was glad to see an old thread revived.
