The Second Delivery

We brought #136 home on a hydraulic trailer. This time we took the wet approach. Because she was in the water and sound, we could travel by water from Daytona to Stuart.

Daughter Liv and I drove upto Halifax River YC. After a bit of provisioning, loading a rediculouse amount of gear, and an oil change we set off.

We got underway about 1pm. Relatively uneventful. Liv did most of the steering while I got busy going through the boat.

Night fall found us at Allenhurst basin in the Cape Canaveral preserve. Two of the items we had brought went into serious use: the generator and the air conditioner. Outside air temp was still about 87 degrees at midnight and lots of mosquitoes. We were really happy to be in side and 75. It was cramped and messy with junk stacked every where. We took advantage of the dumpster to little effect.


We got an early start and motor sailed down the Indian River, making Vero by night fall. Liv had to jump ship, leaving me alone with the mess. In the morning I took several more loads to the dumpster and then headed further south.

Home at 3 pm and anchored in Manatee Pocket by dinner time.
