Boat Buddies

09 December 2010
So, as planned Bob and Carolyn fly down to join us to help us begin our cruise this year. I pick them up in Fort Lauderdale and bring them back to Sea Sharp. They have fled a winter storm but, unfortunately have arrived in temperatures not much more temperate than home. In fact, when we get up the next morning, record cold temperatures have been set.

We are very happy to have our great friends on board again, but I think Chopin may be the happiest to be reacquainted with his good friend Bob. So we hustle to sort things out and the next morning, we leave Stuart to start our trek south. Our destination today is West Palm Beach/Lake Worth. It warms up as the day progresses and by mid day it is warm and balmy; at least in the cockpit of Sea Sharp where the enclosure acts like a green house and warms us all up.

We take the intercostals today and, in the company of Roger and Jacquie on Audacious, have an uneventful, but pleasant trip. We drop anchor in Lake Worth North and have a great dinner anticipating to leave early the next day to go on the outside (Atlantic) to Fort Lauderdale).

I used the davits for the trip and am very pleased. Moving though the many bridges, its' comfort9ing to know that you're not dragging the dinghy behind; and I've been able to maintain a half knot more speed. All in all, a very good investment.

Adventures await us the next day and you'll have to stay tuned for the next episode.....
