December 2009 - Stern Thruster Installation, Bottom Job & Strip Painted

Barb decided that she wanted a stern thruster to make life easier.  Here we go! Let's cut BIG holes in our boat and hope it works out. The professionals came in and in 2 days we had a great addition to our floating home!

It works great and makes docking (and the accompanying tension) a lot easier!

November 2009 - Oak Island - Job Beason Park Marina

This was supposed to be a cruise to Smith Point but due to low water no one could get up close enough to the bulkhead to tie up! We decided to head over to Oak Island to the new Job Beason Park Marina.
Another fun cruise in spite of adversity!

March 2009 - Spring Break Cruise to Port Aransas






This was the biggest and longest TMCA cruise that we have ever led down coast. We had 29 boats signed up for this cruise and we had to make accommodations for all. Josh and I took a driving trip several months before to scope out some docking/restaurant locations. In Pt. O'Conner, we were fortunate to find The Sanctuary at Costa Grande.
Some boats were single handed, some had boat problems during the trip and had to turn back or wait until our return trip, and some went offshore. The first part of the trip the weather was not nice but we kept moving on hoping that the weather would get better and it did!
