Leaving the North land?

Well it's starting to cool off here in Ohio. I just got back from a week in Panama City Beach Florida. I have never been to the panhandle of Florida. I usually go to the Keys.

Mike / Cooling.
Well it's starting to cool off here in Ohio. I just got back from a week in Panama City Beach Florida. I have never been to the panhandle of Florida. I usually go to the Keys. I really like the area and I can take Hobo overland with my truck going down I-71 to I-65. I don't remember driving any of the real sharp turns or crazy steep grades I experience on I-77 or 75.

So, the plan is to be on the road South to PCB in November and once Hobo gets in the water I can dock in PCB for a very reasonable 400.00 monthly.
When it gets cooler there I'll point her nose South to the Keys and then to the Windwards.

I definitely don't want to sit in the snow and wet cold up here.

Helped Dad put a hardtop on the Skiffcraft today and it looks good.

Paint is on tap the next couple days and a we're putting in a new through hull transducer for the sonar.
