Assuming 7 AM EST departure we should arrive 6 hrs later say 1 PM EST time. Their time will be 11AM as we gain 2 hrs going west. We will go to the Playa Linda Pier as there is Pemex fuel and Customs. I expect we will be there awhile as cruising guide says to allow a half day to clear customs. I have a lot of the forms already made out so we may set a record for time clearing Customs as well I hope.
I will then go under the bridge to the lagoon side and check out Carlos and Charlie Marina on the Lagoon side and see if they can accommodate us. Not sure which hotel we are staying at yet but will post here once we know. Please look us up.

Be careful on the lagoon side. It was pretty shallow in most places. Good luck Bob.

I'll give it a shot man. Our resort is about a 45 minute shuttle ride south of Cancun. Maybe once we get settled in to the resort I can talk the future wife into heading back into town. Will check in on OSO once we get to the hotel.

The Gulf this morning. Forecast looks good for the rest of the week.
I have no illusions tho that 300 miles out going into the Yucatan Straits it will be like this. We will see.... and hope for the best.
Happy Birthday to my daughter Chrisy today !!
Bob

Not much more time for posting today. Lots to do before leaving for Key West.
