We are planning a visit to Chat N Chill mid afternoon Sunday before we tie up at February Point Marina. Will ask for KB and let you know.

Awesome!!! Sunday is the day of the week that the Chat N Chill is really bumping. I sure would love to see the faces when that 50' beauty of yours pulls up amongst all the CC's and flats boats.

I still have one piece of dirt left on tropic of cancer beach down there. I really need to get back there to visit.

Have fun today guys.. you will be in my thoughts!!

Take sum pics for us!!

Through the wonders of modern telecommunications, I'm having this dictated to me from Alec in Canada so I can give you guys an update on Bob's progress.

He is off his planned schedule, and called Alec to let everyone know there is no problem. Because the seas were so calm and travel was good, Bob was eating hamburgers with his crew in Nassau at 4 o'clock.

The adventurers decided it was too early to quit, so they made the decision to continue on to Georgetown. A ways out of Nassau they threw a blade from one of the props. No problem in the calm seas- they decide to jump in and change the prop, but had a quick change of mind when a shark swam by.

At reduced speed they continued on... (times like this it is very handy to have 3 motors in your boat)

A little while later they lost power steering, and as of last communication, Bob suspects fluid level is the culprit. He is steering with his tabs and bow thruster as they are making way to the Georgetown docks.

Just want to let everyone know all is well, they are having a fantastic time and will give us an update sometime tomorrow.

The adventure continues...
