2019 first cruise!
16 April 2019 | Placida, Florida
After launching our new boat a 43' Endeavor Ketch last Friday we are close to setting out on our first cruise! One more repair to go - replacing an "O" ring on the transmission shifter, this is scheduled to happen tomorrow!
Today we picked up our son Bill and granddaughter Lilly (see picture) and they dropped us at Charlotte Harbor boat marina and took our car for us. We are now officially carless, land no longer “CLODS” (Cruisers living on dirt) last step to becoming full time Cruisers again!
Our plan after we cast off is to do some sea trials with our new boat in Charlotte Harbor while awaiting a weather window to sail to Marathon and then up the ICW and back to Our home port in Catskill, NY.
