Well the vet recommended that Matilda get a bad tooth pulled, and after losing Izza while at sea, we decided to wait til vet can give her a clean bill of health. So the new departure date is around the 10 of December. Surgery will be done on the 5 and a couple of days for recovery
Well all projects are complete. I have worked off and on all summer and all doctor's have been seen, so we are preparing to shove off. The plan is to head south around the first of December, but it is written in the sand at low tide, so it could be earlier or a bit later! :D
Well the trip up the ICW was not very eventful. Naturally we went aground once, (only one hull), and had battles with large power boats waking us. But other than that it was the normal trip.
We had some 70 mile days and one 80 mile day. So we made pretty good time getting home.
It was a WONDERFUL cruising season. Thanks to the foks we were sailing with and the new places we were able to explore.
Our total mileage from 12/08/06 to 05/17/07 was 2980 nautical miles. We were under way for 500 hours on 80 trips, and we spent $2500 dollars for fuel, slips, water, and oil.
At the present time we are back in Asheville listing the house with an agent and planning on our departure in December :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
