Ship Island or Bust!

Ship Island, MS April 21-26, 2009



Day 1.

We are determined to make it to Ship Island, MS on this trip. The barrier islands off the coast of Mississippi beckon us. And who are we to ignore a challenge!

Talisman ready for Gulf Coast travel

Posted on March 6, 2009 at 12:33pm 10 Comments

Hi, Fidgety II, read your comments. We bought a Pearson 365 ketch and have been readying it for some coastal cruising. This would be our first. Talisman is docked at Madisonville and we plan to make our way east to Mobile or Pensacola sometime late March. Do you have any tips as to marinas or anchorages along the coast? Other interesting places to see, where to eat, etc.? Are you on the north- or southshore? Would love to chat with you about your experiences. Gina & Mike Sibley

Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
