Phil in St. Thomas - Bon Voyage!

Phil called me this morning.  His luggage arrived at the boat last night at 930pm.  They routed his luggage on American Airlines thru Miami so that it arrived in St. Thomas about 830pm  yesterday and they delivered it to him at the boat.  What a relief!

They are getting ready to cast off this morning.  Just waiting to be checked out by the Marina.  Their plan is to sail NW until they get to Cape Hatteras area( they expect to take 5-6 days and be about 200 miles off in the Atlantic Ocean).  Then they will point directly towards NY City as much as the winds allow.  Typically the winds will be coming from the NW once they get that far north, which will be on the nose.  That's Captain Dave's problem.  Lets just hope there aren't any storms.

One cool thing on this boat, is that the settees have a slide out that makes the bunk 4-5"wider for sleeping.  Really cool Phil says.  I say - can we do something like that on Changes for the Port Settee?  Phil says a lot of work we'll see.   Well it was worth a try right??

I will not hear for Phil for about 10 days while they are at sea.  I'm glad that I could talk to him 3 times since he left.  Bon Voyage!  Safe travels!!
