2110.8nm into our trip and loving it
My family and I are over 2000nm into our trip and have loved every minute of it. We've crossed great lakes, cleared the canal, dinghied in the hudson during a tropical depression, puttered the icw, sailed chunks of the Atlantic off shore in fair weather and bad, had loggerheads bottlenose and right whales come and visit us along the way. Now we sit with a direct view of a SpaceX launch from our cockpit and I wouldn't change a thing. It's been a challenge, and we are only 1/3rd of the way done, and we wish it would never end.
We will haul in titusville so I can fix the upper rudder bushings and a mystery prop knock. We also will make the 22hr drive north to see family for christmas then return to shove off to the bahamas. Firefly was always a great boat to us but she 100% feels like home now and we don't miss our land life in the least. Anyone thinking of doing this kind of thing should do it. It takes some money but not millions, it takes a well found boat but not a circummavigator, and it is a challenge but nothing most couldn't overcome.
