I Got Lucky arrives in Naples

I just got off the phone with the boat yard in Naples.  Lucky has arrived and is in good condition.  They gave her a thorough inspection, even noticing the slight ding I managed to give her all those years ago while learning how to park.  Not easy when you're talking about 30,000 pounds and 45' with no brakes.

I also spoke with the shipping company, giving them my credit card number for payment.  Big number (gulp!), but think of the air miles!  Permission should be given soon for the yard to lift her off the truck and place her on stands, ready for the work to commence.  First job, paint the bottom!

We're in Florida ourselves, and will be chartering a trawler from Jan. 5-9 out of Fort Lauderdale. Any chance we can get together?

That would be great. Maybe after you finish your charter. Take lots of pictures of your adventure.
