Default Gulf Crossing Tomorrow

Okay, looks like the time has come to point the old Hatt towards the Volunteer state. I've looked at my options to repair my one winged 58 and have decided to run her home on one engine. I just can't risk staying around with no insurance, and no doubt my checkbook is a little on the thin side for a $30K rebuild right now. Yep, sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not a rich man.

It's probably going to cost be better than $6K in fuel alone to get her back home. With all this in mind, will somebody PLEASE buy this dang boat so I can just get on a plane and go home?

I have a good friend and fellow Hatt owner who has volunteered to make the trip as far as Mobile. We'll be leaving Clearwater and headed to Appalachicola where we'll pick up the ICW for the run to Mobile. After that, I'm on my own. In the event we don't make it to the other side, please say something nice about me at my Viking funeral, even if you have to make something up!
