|Malaika hauling out|
Being in the boatyard sucks. There are chemicals everywhere, the sound of sanders & grinders starts about 7am & continues through out the day. We have to climb up a long ladder to get on & off the boat--which is a little difficult with Jib. I can't wait to "splash" (get the boat back in the water). This is the 1st time in 4 months we've slept on land. It feels weird. We're splashing in a couple of hours during high tide & then we're going to tie up to a mooring ball outside of the City Marina. We plan on leaving Tuesday or Wednesday. We are going outside & heading to Lake Worth. About 200 miles . These will be my 1st overnighters. Either Greer or Aaron, who are both licensed captains, are coming with us. It's a long journey to do without stopping. It will be a great learning experience for Scott & I before we cross to the Bahamas...by ourselves! I can't believe it's really happening. Everything we've done the last 6 months.... We're so close!!!
