It does act differently. Everything gets dried out. I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact I crank i as high as possible to minimize my time in the freezing 60's!!!

BTW, as I have shared with you and Jaye, I really look forward to coming up to the Chessy and visiting that area. Not sure I will stay through November though!!

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Today is my second in Stuart at the upper end of Manatee Pocket at A&J Marine, where a very nice young man repacked my packing gland. He accomplished the task in less than an hour - HE knew what he was doing.

Tomorrow, a new water pump will be installed by the same person, which solves most of my problems. The only remaining problem is the cutlass bearing, which Mario graciously dove under the boat and checked out for me yesterday. He has a wet suit and could tolerate the chilly water temperatures much better than this old man.

Tonight, I'll be performing music with an old friend at a private party, which should be lots of fun, then first thing tomorrow I'll try to line up someone to take care of the cutlass bearing.

Today's temperature was 81 - Ahhhhh, much better. I'm back to wearing shorts and short sleeved shirts. I love it.

By the end of the week, hopefully, I'll be headed for Miami, and with any kind of luck should get there in 4 to 5 days. Then it's just another 100 miles to Marathon.

Oh Yeah!

Thank you! I really appreciate that. Will not be until next spring/summer. Hopefully see you soon.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Ooh, I'm in! My pressure cooker vs your grill - the great boat cooking technique challenge!

Dave, we HAVE to do those Chesapeake Lions burgees if CD is actually going to be here next summer!

Hey CD, we're southbound autumn 2013. Traveling in loose association with 3 other boats, partying our way down to FL. I mention this to you because, we leave the Ches. early (late Sept) so we are way south before any of that cold weather stuff happens. Like, after a leisurely trip we tied up in St Augustine 1 year ago today. So, maybe we'll see you down the waterway.

Re: The ICW - Single Handed - Well, Almost!

Hmm, let's see - an IT guy, an engineer, a lawyer, and a professional chef competing in a cookoff. And how, exactly, is this playing field even?

(Note how I cleverly invited my friend Phil the lawyer to join the fun?)

Does it take longer to cook food on the grill in that cold temperature?
You guys are too funny

A couple of more cocktails & I could really do something with this being the twisted soul that I am.

Glad everything's working out & you basking in the warmth!
You planning on spending xmas in the Keys?
