Oh I've been depressed since the day she left St. Augustine. Life is a SOB and sometimes it throws you curveballs that require sacrifices. Not gonna lie, looking forward to taking a vacation on boat ownership moving to a 36 CC... I'll have all sorts of time on my hands not having to care for teak, varnish, paint, fairing cracks, dozens of small systems, clamps, and hoses all waiting to ruin your day.

But yes... I'm heart broken every time I see or think of that boat. She will always be very special to me.

The small Freeman crowd stayed home. To rough for them :-)

What were the wave heights in the inlet? Not THT estimates, but real wave heights? Looks too nasty for me!

He has a FB page and if that fails, contact the Bucaneer Tournament and they could track him down.

10.5 sails per day, that sounds like fun

You can't catch them sitting at the dock.

That's Sailfish weather they bite when it's nasty blowing hard out of the NE. Remember it's Palm Beach out 2.5 miles and they are in 300 feet of water, a little over idle, putt out at 8 kts and your putting the lines in 10 minutes later. I've fished in that crap often it's not that bad to fish in once you are there especially being so close to home, it's not like it's a 3 hour ride home.

26 boats releasing 347 sails over 2 days ...

347 / 26 = 13.346 per boat / 2 days = 6.67 released per day

And now you all realize why these very wealthy guys want these giant Sport Fishing Yachts so they can fish all day long in this crap bail sails be totally comfortable all day get home an not feel like they got the shit kicked out of them.

Without hesitation I would go out for those numbers even in my 25 CC, I'd prefer a friends 60+ Tribute but I'd go in mine for those numbers.

Agree. Some of the above posts crack me up. I’ll fish in those conditions any time I have a crew up for it; meaning guys who won’t get seasick and love it. Once my cockpit was flooded the whole way out the inlet but once we got past the sea bouy it was more than fishable (and we did great).

I will say it was easier in my 34 express than it is in my current convertible though.
