More on the Crossing

January 20, 2015 - I was thinking more about the Gulf crossing and thought of a few more details I'd like to chronicle in this journal.  Before we left Carrabelle, we downloaded a form for a float plan from the Coast Guard Auxiliary website.  We filled it out and sent it to a friend and a relative.  If we hadn't contacted them by a certain time on that Sunday we were due to arrive in Clearwater, they would have started a series of actions ... 1) calling us 2) calling 911 to notify the Coast Guard.

The end of the crossing was infinitely better than the beginning.  We had smooth waters for the majority of the trip...and a beautiful sunrise as we neared the end.  In the distance you can see our buddy boat, Vivens Aqua.
