Another incredible day on the water. I got an e mail from GLH as we idled out this morning saying the wind was blowing 15 knots out of the ENE. The first 25 miles were fine, then the seas began to build. Ran in 3 to 5's most of the way after that but no problem for our boats. Got into KW harbor in 2 hrs and when we came off plane one of Zach's black 1200 mtrs quit and would not restart. Left it there and gets picked up in the morning. Hope it is ready for our New Years Day fun run. We had lunch at the Conch Republic and all 13 of us piled in the Nor Tech and headed for Marco via Hawk Channel, Marathon, north across Florida Bay and up the west coast. Worked real well an did not see any seas over 2 ft. Great ride back arriving just before dark.

He, he. Close. Thanks for the weather report GL. The winds picked up as that 75 degree cold front caught up to us but was no problem.
Hope you are enjoying your time in the Keys.
Bob
