New live aboards heading out May 4, 2011

After working for 32 years as a state Park Ranger Bob & I will be living on our 25' Pacific Seacraft. We will be raising the mast & put Heron in the water May 4th. We got the boat Aug 2007, but she needed lots of work. After 3 years of renovating, she's got new life. She hasn't been in water for 10 years or more. We are sooooo glad to be here. Susie

Wink

Have fun out there!...Got her on a trailer or floating down? Where you all headed east or west?...North or South?...If your in Iowa after another winter like that then I've a good guess...don't bring any hitchhiking Michiganders with you...

Sailing down the river...

We will be putting the sailboat into the river at Lake Pepin, MN and sailing south. We will cut over to Kentucky Lakes at Cairo, IL and then south down the Tenn Tom Waterway & out into the Gulf. No hitchhikers for us. We don't have room on the 25' sailboat. LOL

flooding at Cairo

Will the massive flooding and potential blowing of the levy at Cairo by the Corp of Engineers affect your plans?

Flooding on the Mississippi

We don't see the flooding as a problem. We won't be in that area until August so we are hoping all will be back to normal by then. We will go to Plan B if there is a problem. Plan B - hold up until all danger is clear. Glad to meet you, SabrinaKS.
