sailingdog Good luck. Fair winds ScottyT... I'll ask the weather goddess to be kind to you.

PM me your Spot Page, I'd love to see your progress. If you get lucky, you can grab a push from the Gulf Stream if you have southerly winds, which would give you a really good speed boost.

boat delivery Fl to Md, my thread

okay, my first real delivery.

the boat is a tomcat 9.7, its a cat that measures 32 by 16. we are leaving the gulf side ( ft myers ) of Fl on weds and going down around the keys. the destination is annapolis Md.

the boat is a coastal boat but we are going outside as long as the weather allows. there are 3 people on board including myself, the owner and a retired delivery captain.

we are well equipped, extra fuel, parts and food. i have my spot messenger, which i added ssneade for checkin reports, hopefully he will update this thread daily with the google link for our location. on the boat is 3 gps's, 3 vhfs, my spot, and a sat phone so commo is covered, including the weather router reports

we could if the winds grace us we could be back in 5 days at the min, but probably closer to 7 or 8 barring bad weather. of course bad weather could make it take weeks

wish us luck
