Mike's Famous Five03/15/2012
Over the course of the past four years of cruising and in the many, many social setting that we participated in, I have taken it upon myself to pose five questions to the many cruisers we've encountered. I don't do this all the time but if the circumstances present themselves, and the company seems amenable, I will ask people to consider five questions and answer them in turn. You would be amazed at how forthcoming people are (often ,of course, after a couple of sundowners) in responding.
Another Season Concludes03/15/2012
I've got a lot to report since my last post which related our return to Stuart. Well, in the week we spent at Loggerhead Marina in Stuart we were very, very busy but still had time to relax and enjoy the company and pleasures of this marina and beautiful town. Basically, we went through the boat from one end to the other, cleaning, servicing and packing in preparation for summer storage.

So with very the front now behind us but with ominous weather stretching far into next week, we have a small window to head from Lantana to Stuart where we'll start the process of getting Sea Sharp ready to store for the summer.

I can hear you readers loudly sighing, "Oh no, not another long winded post about batteries, amp hours, energy deficiencies and other drivel" I can also hear you lamenting, "And after all of the mistakes he's made, now he considers himself an expert...."
On the Road Again03/04/2012
After our quick but productive stop-over at Coconut Grove, we head across Biscayne Bay one more time to stage for our "outside" trip north. It's only six miles and we anchor in No Name Harbour where we spent a couple of nights earlier this year. From this location we are very close to the outlet to the ocean which is our only option to get north to Fort Lauderdale because of the infamous Julia Tuttle Bridge which is lower than our mast.
