Doug,

Congrats man...she's looking great! Great pictures of you & your Dad. Brings back some memories of the whole process I went through last year with my boat. Having my Dad join me to bring the boat up the coast really was the trip of a lifetime. I know you want to get that boat back to your place in Flordia asap. Some advice I can give you from my trip...would be to take your time. Don't rush it....take a few extra hours here and there even an extra day or two to explore spots along the way. Life is short....you will never get that time or those opportunities with your Dad again. Enjoy the trip & get some blood on that deck!

Unfortunately I can’t join them for most of the delivery due to having just started a new job. If weather window and Memorial Day line up, I may try to get flight to Tampa and do the home stretch with them. Will cut across the gulf at some point. Usually I do tarpon springs to Apalachicola. If you jump across sooner the trolling improves slightly though.

Good advice on taking time. They do plan to take a couple weeks and do as much ICW as possible.

She made it home last night. All tied up. Still a lot of things to knock out before we’re fishing. I’m guessing another 6-8 weeks seeing as none of the remaining 30-40 items (so far) will have any hired help... excluding the engine rebuild.
