13 November 2012 | Key West, FL
Well, its been a fun and productive stay here in Key West. I got to play lots of music, see some old friends and make some new ones. Now, I'm beginning to make preparations for heading back to the mainland.
Yesterday, I rented an air tank and dove on the hull. My bottom paint is getting a little "tired" so there was plenty of sea life to scrape off. I also cleaned the prop, replaced my prop zinc, topped off my fresh water and refilled the battery water.
I plan to leave here in about a week and head back to the Cocoa Beach area. As always, my exact route and schedule depend on the weather and sea conditions. Even though I don't place very much stock in long range weather predictions, I have already started watching the weather forcast.
My preference would be to go "outside" from Boot Key to Palm Beach in one long 24+ hour run. That would put me two days from Cocoa Beach after that. Again, thats my preference but I always give the weather the last word.
In the mean time, here's a picture of me and my buddies at Captain Tony's.
