"Just finished Fool by Christopher Moore. I think it's one of his best. Laugh out loud. He's a great break from the Robert Crais and T Jefferson Parker and John Sandford that I've been reading."

"Your draft should not be a problem on the ICW, but do stay within the channel. The flow from small inlets can sometimes silt up the channel so watch the charts and be careful when you come to these. If you haven't done the ICW, it's worth…"

"With a trimaran drawing just over a foot, you must have been able to go pretty much anywhere you wanted to, huh? I mean, providing there was horizontal clearance. Sounds cool. Anybody have advice concerning a 5.5' draft in the ICW?"

Saw your boat yesterday while was out checking on mine. That's a stout looking boat! I know about the "donut hole". I fell in this past November. Only my wallet was injured!

Waterford did fine. The center of Watergate was destroyed. Several piers gone, boats everywhere, bldgs. gutted. Very sad. I am on 5 near Waterford, so Pier Pressure did ok. The area was hit hard. Getting back to some normal, but will take awhile.
Where are you now?
