Congrats man! I know the first few sails were pretty nerve racking for us too. Good luck with the prop, hopefully you can get back out there soon!

Prop is here! Ordered some lights and stuff to redo my electrical system. Should be all ready to go for the weekend. Hopefully i will be doing my first overnighter. Weather is supposed to be magnificent.

Re: I finally did it!

I hope your weekend is a go for you!

My favorite part of overnighters is the morning. I wake at the break of dawn as the sky explodes in colors. The mist pulls gently way from the water. A lone bass boat in the distance doing 70....fresh perc'd cup of coffee in the cockpit, a smoke....and the smell of sausage frying in the galley. Yes, it's a magical time of day.

That is the part i am looking forward to. I love being up just before dawn. When i camp, i seem to always wake up with the birds. Guess i am going to have to dig out my camp stove. Nothing like a fresh coffee to watch the sun rise. I am at the mercy of the USPS at this point. Hope i get all my stuff by friday! Will definitely post pics if it all works out.
