Deanna and I are snug in our boat in North Palm Beach. We are continuing the never-ending saga of boat repairs and upgrades, spending quality time with old friends, and generally enjoying the warm Florida weather. Plans are always weather dependent and fuzzy but we hope to cross over to the Bahamas in mid-January to February, work our way south down the Exuma chain, and spend time in the Turks and Caicos. As many of the islands along the way are a bit more remote and sparsely populated we are adding some freezer capacity, laying on more supplies and food than usual, checking our backup systems and safety gear, servicing main, genset and wing engines, updating charts, laying in a supply of watermaker filters, servicing the tender outboard…the list goes on but soon the work will be done and the fun begins. Life is good!
Best Wishes for the New Year!
