All We Lack is Finishing Up

Ahoy Mates!

Eric back,  with a little update on the crew of Still Waters II.

Our crew has been working diligently on getting the boat ready for the 2016 cruising season.  New furniture, new rugs, refurbished cabinet, updated stairs, and many other smaller items on the Admiral’s To Do List.  Yes, the skipper has been busy this winter!

The skipper also added a 2015 map that links to the stops along the journey last year.  You can find the link near the top right corner labeled mysteriously as “2015 Map.”  The good news is that the Admiral has just about completed her over haul of the interior decorating and the summer cruising season is just around the corner.

Current thinking is that the crew will leave Jacksonville March 29 and head south down the St Johns River for a few days.  After exploring the River, the crew will head north back to Norfolk for the spring rendezvous  of the America’s Great Loop Cruising Association (AGLCA).

The crew will then make way for Cape May, New Jersey where they stopped their forward progress in October 2015 due to cool weather.  From Cape May, the crew will head to NYC, up the Hudson River, and then cross Lake Ontario into Canada.  Eventually making it to Chicago about Labor Day Weekend.

Hope to see you back aboard as a virtual crew member!

Enjoy the ride, maintain course and speed.

  1. Can’t wait to go along with you this year. Will be taking notes. Manasquan Inlet my old stomping grounds. Just north of Cape May. Great places to lay over for the night, the shrimp box and surrounding places to eat are great.

  5. Love the photos – especially Foggy Morning at the Marina. I don’t know if you can technically claim to have had a beak but whatever you call it, it’s definitely been productive. Your plans for resuming sound wonderful. A few years ago I vacationed in upstate NY along the Hudson and thought it was fabulous. Enjoy.
