Lisa's Pics

Published with Blogger-droid v2.0.1

Picture Lisa took with her cell phone. Not the boat to the right. That is their boat. Rose is holding our token new boat/easter basket and Mark is carrying his lucky can of pineapple juice.

Kind of neat seeing a picture of a cool couple on their first leg of their dream. 

Exit Only and the Buegel Anchor

Published with Mernauco Advanced trimeta data technology using proprietary mernauco software  v2.0.4

This is Exit Only, the boat that sailed around the world and is featured in Maxing Out website. Note the Buegel Anchor they wrote about on their blog. Just sitting there ripe for the taking. Had I my handy All-in-One tool, an open trunk, no one looking, and no conscience, I would have just taken it. It was just there so I guess it makes it free. But no, I didn't have any of the above, so I left it. That anchor is as pretty as any airport I have ever been to. 

a big s trimaran

Published with mernaucoid-electron-droid v2.0.4

This trimaran was just down the dock from the Leone's Island Packet. I believe it is a Cross Trimaran and about 27 feet wide and 47 feet long. Some guy was living aboard it and had his hatch opened and it looked like a dorm room inside with a couch and full size regular bed and big screen TV. I wonder if he takes it out much? I think this would be a bit much to single hand but Donald Crowhurst almost sailed around the world with a tri, but his was a 40 foot, the Teignmouth Electron

Fort Pierce to the Bahamas

The Leone's just need to get up early, motor out and get a nice northwesterly blow and get across the gulfstream. At 5 knots, it would only take them about 20 hours.
