Another release from smacky - November | 2016 | SMACKTALK!

Thanks for the BFS head gear, Steve. I'll get you some photos of Kris and I in our BFS Shop skullies. Nice and warm, and comfortable, for these chilly mornings in Georgia.

I couldn't find the tongue in cheek emoticon.... Yeah, Steve is a pretty laid back guy in real life. I enjoy watching the boys in his videos. They are great kids, and very polite. Steve is a good father, and I'm sure his late wife was a wonderful mom. It shows in those boys. I'm just happy to see them pursuing life with such a good attitude after such a loss. Way to go Steve, Jesse, and Quinn!

The quality of the video seemed quite good, he seems to have some talent in that area. I missed the "nail biting " part of it though Ralph, maybe you can help me.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

I just got an email from smack checking up on us after Matthew. We are in Brunswick, Georgia. A few of us stayed at the marina on our boats or in the cruiser's lounge during the hurricane. Maybe Steve should send me a BFS cap for that? For smack's friends here, he just released another of his nail-biting videos -

Made it into Ft. Meyers (Charlotte Harbor) this morning at 1030. Hit a couple of big squalls last night, but nothing too concerning. When we got here we had breakfast then I crashed. Just now waking up. Time to hit the pool.



Sad that the trip is coming to a close. We'll put Dawn Treader on the hard on Monday, then head back to Austin. It's been absolutely wonderful.

We'll run down to Ft. Meyers next week. We'll be storing the boat on the hard there and heading back to Austin. Then next year when the boys are out of school we'll move on down into the Bahamas for Leg 2.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Safe and sound. Came in around 1230. WAY TOO MUCH MOTORING! But it was a great passage. We came in, tied up, got seafood (and beer for dad), then I hit the sack for some much needed sleep. Just now waking up and getting moving again at 1900. Lots of little problems I need to get on, but Dawn Treader performed wonderfully - even beating into 8' short-period waves with water over the bow at times.

We are all very tired but happy.

More soon.

(Thanks for the concern Ralph. The boys are rockstars.)
