Big Adventures In A Little Boat
The master plan
Tony Cold
03/19/2013, Detroit

Well here is the plan, I am going to.take this.little boat everywhere I can. I am on the Detroit River across from Belle Isle so my first trip will be to Sindbads to eat. I won't even have to put the sails up.

There are so.many places go and see. They race on Lake St. Clair every week. The river is cool. Lake Erie, Lake Michigan, Mackinac, Ceder Point, Put n Bay, and that is all in my backyard.
I want to take it to N.C. for a month around Cape Fear and the most important life altering trip is the Bahamas. Trailer it down to Florida and head to West end or Bimini I don't care both are better than Detroit in the winter.
I don't care where I go or get to as much as I go and get anywhere. Life Short.not
So follow my journeys and we will see together where I make it to. Now I an just waiting for the ice to melt. I will.have enough project to busy till then

This is the first blog or as Kirk would say "Captains log" I am starting to record my adventures with It, ldo my Cal 20. It is sitting in the Detroit River frozen in ice right now. I am waiting for the thaw.
They are solid boats and I looked at tons before picking this one. There were many that were newer, bigger, nicer,and a better value. I got her for a 1000 so not too bad of a start. She didn't have a motor or trailer so when you ad those I could.have picked up.a 25 to 29.
When I went down to the goatyard (that was not a misprint look it up on Google very cool) I met Stephen and Sue for.the first time. I was expecting some cheesy broker and instead they were a very likable couple in an older Toyota. I could Write all night on how cool they are and how much they are helping poor people like me get on the water.
I saw The first Cal I liked it very clean looking. We walked around a looked at many nice boats and a few beat ones. I liked them all but none jumped.out at me. We went down the street to.the marina and I saw her and new this.was my boat and the beginning of a friendship
