I would like to acknowledge and thank donations received to date so far, for the Trust Fund for Jennifur:

OSO Jassman
OSO Wobble
OSO Michael Berg
OSO kenvik01
Also I have fulfilled my pledge ( given to Hans rockstrmkr )

I expect many are waiting for me to complete the run to Cancun which will get done once we get our weather window.

Thank you all.

Bob

COME on guy's only 4 other peaple other then my self
this is a great cause .
you don't have to give much . just a lil bit from a bunch of peaple will add up .
where are all the big baller's on this site ?
99 % of the peaple on oso talk so much but they don't back it up ..

Good luck with the run Bob and hopefully more peaple will donate for this great thing your doing to raise money for someone else ...

think about this guy's if you had your family out on a boat and had a acident and only one of your kid's survived wouldnt you want other peaple to help your own kid out ..

give a liltle and it will come back to you down the road ..
do on to other's as you would want done to you ...

thank's
mike

The weather on this side of the Gulf is not bad at all. The Yucatan side tho is quite a different story. The remnants of Tropical storm Arthur are still lingering. Attached forecast below says currently 25 knot winds and up to 8 ft seas for the SW Gulf. Even later in the week they are saying 10 to 15 knots and 3 - 5ft. seas.
Some of my crew are wanting to do the Jacksonville Poker Run this coming weekend. I have released them to do that and hopefully after the weekend we will be in a better weather system and good to go.
This has been quite a learning experience. The SW Gulf seems to get its weather out of the Carribean thru the Yucatan Straits and the eastern Gulf mostly influenced by the Atlantic. Now if we could just have a large high pressure system settle in over the entire southern Gulf ........ oh, well. LOL
We will continue to wait and watch.
Bob

You mean " unpredictable ?? LOL

I was thinking - If this were 15 or 20 years ago this run would be done and over with and in the record books. I guess as we get older we are a little wiser and have more respect for the elements.
In 1991 I decided to go to Bimini for lunch one day. Took an hour to go out in calm seas. Coming back we got caught with a front coming down from the north and we were in 15 footers in no time. It took 3.5 hrs to get back and the boat took on so much salt water it was pretty well wrecked. A few of my lessons learned were: pay attention to the weather forecast, carry a life raft when offshore, have a back up VHF radio ( ours quit with the soaking, have good navigation equipment and know where you are at all times ( had compass only ), file a float plan and I could go on but those are some of the key things that come to mind.
Safe boating to everyone.
Bob
