Team Red Cruising

More Moving In

Hoping to be weekenders. But. There were problems.

Back in June, we moved one car-load (small sedan car: trunk and back seats) from the boat to an apartment. This included a lot of clothes and some essentially galley and head supplies.

On July 5th, we moved one more little sedan trunk-load of stuff from boat to apartment. Mostly clothes. Some Floating Leaf supplies. There's a little bit more to move ashore. Not much: guitars and some additional hobby things.

We were hoping to make a big July 4th cruise with some pictures of Cheaspeake Bay scenery.

We had two problems:

  1. Hurricane Arthur made the Bay into a right mess on Friday, limiting our cruising.

  2. The Whitby 42 Puffin.

The owners of Puffin have also been moving from boat to shore. In their case, settling in Texas. That means moving Puffin in two stages: Cumberland Island, GA, to Marathon, FL. Then Marathon, FL, to Galvaston, TX. Two long trips.

CA is going to be crew on the Marathon to Galveston leg. She and the delivery skipper will be going up the Florida coast to New Orleans, taking a quick break, and then New Orleans to Galveston.

Consequently, we spent the weekend getting CA's offshore kit organized and getting her on a flight to Marathon. I'm hoping that I've reset the SPOT Tracker to capture her positions along this trip. Otherwise, I won't know where she is until she checks in when they get near shore.
