I will not be held responsible.

Sorry Bob but I just couldn't pass up the deal on that new Mexican built VW Beetle. My cards were maxed out. I was going to pay you back.

Yeah I got all nostalgic when I saw them there.

BTW since I just can't enough. I'm boating back to KW from Ft. Myers tomorrow for my "25th" birthday. After the 1035 miles in the last week it will seem like a walk in the park.

It was a blast even tho there was a lot of tough going today again. Huge rollers and we were constantly changing the setup to keep the boat happy and then wham, a big un would hit us and we would drop down into a big hole. Over 8 hrs of that. Terry drove 80% of the time and did a great job of it. I had a fall when getting off the boat at Isla Mujures yesterday morning before we made that attempt. We had to turn back because of even bigger seas which we might have tackled had it not been for my injuries. I fell between the dock and the boat and would have been better to just fall in the water. My natural instincts kicked in tho and I grabbed the boat with my right arm and the dock with my left. I have torn ligaments and/or muscles in my right shoulder, cuts and scrapes to my right ankle, tore a nail of a toe on my left foot and banged up my left knee enough to have me limping along. When we came back in yesterday I decided best to see a doc at the Navy Hospital in Isla Mujures. Too funny. I will post pics when I eventually get time. No one spoke English and I do not speak Spanish. I had the lady doctor and nurse laughing so much. The bill was $27.00 and they worked on me for an hour including a shot which I told them was probably heroin and a wrap around my entire upper body to completely immobilize my throttle arm.
Would I do a project like this again ? You bet. In a heartbeat. But I think I will have a little recovery time first.
I will post more in the days ahead as I have time but for now, I think I will get some rest.
Thank you all who followed us along.
Bob
Sorry to hear about yer fall, and injuries, your right it is natural instinct to grab the boat, and Dock. I did the same thing first time I took the Pantera out, but of course i had a few drinks, and it is a little different being sandwiched by a 50 footer.

Default Nuther story - Kevin's long way home !

When we saw it would be a few days or more before the weather would allow our return trip to Key West, a decision was made to fly back to the US. Four of us flew to Florida and Kevin purchased air tickets to get him back to LA. He bought Cancun – Mexico City – LA, non refundable. Kevin brought a birth certificate only, which was fine if he was travelling by boat, which of coarse was the plan. They allowed him to board the Cancun to Mexico City portion of the flight but with no passport, he could not board his flight to LA. He then asks “ Well just how do I get back to the US then? “ The answer was – purchase a new ticket to Tijuana and walk across the border. So Kevin does that, walks out the Tijuana airport, jumps in a taxi only to be told that the taxi’s are not allowed within one mile of the border checkpoint. Kevin walks that mile, suitcase and laptop computer in hand, at 1:30 in the morning. Don’t know about you, but that sounds scarier to me than crossing the Yucatan Straits ! He had a ride there waiting for him and arrived home safely at 3:30 AM.
Way to go Kevin !!

Several people have e mailed a PM'd me wondering how the shoulder is. In short, not good at all. I went to Cleveland last week for the MRI and saw an orthopedic surgeon. The rotator cuff is majorly torn and the upper part of the bicept muscle that goes over the shoulder has been pulled down in front.
I am scheduled for surgery this Wed. the 2nd to have everthing put back where it belongs. This is really gonna cramp my boating style for awhile, but did not stop me from getting out on the water this weekend.
Bob
