I am sad to report the Broom family is no longer in the Caribbean :-). The good news is we are having a great passage. The weather is warm with enough cool at night that we actually had to dig out PANTS. First time since sometime in 2011. The winds are actually a bit low but we won't complain too much. They shift around from 8-11 knts but are still keeping the boat speed about 5-5.5 knots. Last night the wind died a bit so we motored from 2 am to 10 am. Looks like tonight might be the same. We can even cook on this passage!! But we won't have to cuz Dale made a huge batch of hotdish that we'll need to eat up!! Not much to report. I like this kind of passage making! We should be anchored in Turk and Caicos on Sunday.

These were taken when we bought her in 2006. The biggest interior change was removing the top bunk in the walkthrough (Wyatt's room) and making it a storage area. Yes - this boat has a TUB!
