Default Re: Gulf Crossing Tomorrow

Thanks for the links there jellodude.

I looked at the NOAA site this morning and everything looks okay. Looks like we're just about ready to hit the road, so this may be my last post for a while. No internet on the Gulf, and I'm not sure if we'll be able to get any weather on the VHF that far out. Once you're committed and offshore, it really doesn't matter as you're just going to have to ride out whatever comes your way.

My mechanic is supposed to come down in a bit and make an adjustment to the governor on my one good engine, and that should have everything up to snuff for the trip. We're looking at about a 22-24 hour run to the other side, so needless to say it's gonna be a loong ride with nothing to see but water.

Seizure later.
