Getting ready to head NORTH

We have completed all the task needed to get High Spirits ready to head back to Florida.  Checked the coolant, oil, filled boat with water, added diesel, and filled up the greaser.

Leaving tomorrow with Alize, Dick and Margaret Dragonnette from Chagrin Falls, Ohio.  They keep their boat in Ft. Pierce at Whitaker Boat Yard. The plan is to leave Marsh Harbor tomorrow , cross Whale Channel and end up in Munjack Cay.  Then possible stay there a day and then work our way north and west to Great Sale Cay and then into West End. Not sure what day we will be crossing the Gulf Stream.  Could be as early as Wed, April 17 or as late as Tuesday, April 23. All depends on what people want to do, and what the weather for crossing is going to be later in next week.

Hope to do some snorkeling and fishing along the way.  Perhaps we will even catch something we can eat!

We will not have any Internet or phone service once we leave Marsh Harbor tomorrow as we will be anchoring out in remote locations.  Have our VHF radio so we can talk to each other, but the range is only about 20 miles

So most likely no blog until we get to Ft. Pierce.
