Yes, external. It occasionally happens when I slide up on the beach at Keewaydin as well. Strainers are easily accessed and in a few minutes we are on our way.

Thanks, I didn't know what kind of drives you were running.

Don't forget to turn on the Pro video, especially if you get into some big seas Have fun.

Someone has started a rumor that you might be showing up to Boyne Thunder and riding with another boater. Any truth to this?

The Go Pro's are acting up Robert and tried one day and gave up on both of them. They may have been treated a little harshly by me over their relatively short life. I need a better system than can be operated with remote control rather than climbing up on the deck every time to turn off and off etc. Will need to get something better figured out that does not always have battery issues etc. Next time we will get better video.

Hmmm. Yes it's true. Bill generously invited me over to MI and will join him and his family on their new 39 Nor Tech CC. Looking forward to seeing many MI offshore friends in July. See you then.

Pic 1 is pulling away from Rodney Bay, St Lucia yesterday morning as we starting working our way back north. Other pics and captions later as meeting the group for breakfast now. Staying here at the Marriott in St Kitts for a day of relaxation before going up to St Maarten tomorrow.

A few more shoreline pics as we passed the French Islands of Martinique / Dominica and Guadeloupe. The next Island north is Montseratt where an active volcano wiped out a town. Shortly I will post several pics of that Island alone that will show the devastation.
