Wow.. I can't believe it's half way down through January already!
We left Dragon Point, and the Banana River this morning at 0800.
We pulled into Vero Beach marina (mooring field) at 1330 hours.
Nice run south on the AICW. Nice wind but "on the nose"....

We had arranged to raft up to the s/v "Elle and I" (Elaine and Lawrence).
and so we did... The came back from the beach, just as we were approaching their boat to raft... so we waited...
They did supper tonight (Tuesday) on Elle and I, and we did music in the evening. on AB
I wanted to see if I could still play guitar... I realized I haven't had the instruments out since arriving at Titusville, the end of November... That's much too long... fingers will hurt!!!

We moored at N27 39.42 W080 22.268 for those with Google Earth. I haven't updated the page yet... maybe later this AM (Wed.).

I did loosen up the packing once again, during one of the "walk-abouts" yesterday, because the packing gland (brass) was still warm to the touch.
I think that's the norm with the new packing... I also think that the old packing leaked SO much that the brass gland was continually sea temp.

16 jan 2013 Wed.
OK... time... Elle and I has now un-rafted and is hovering near the fuel dock...
We're now alone on mooring #17. I'll go out shortly and thread another line through the mooring ring.

We'll dinghy down and see the Poolers (s/v C-Note) later this AM. Then maybe take the bus into town... and have dinner with the crew from s/v SEEKER later (Kathy, and Earl).
