    Are you out of Bay Moorings ? Green trim with an extension ? We had our small boat there for the winter, saw yours on the hard. I think someone said you have BMW diesels ?

        We are gearing up to spend the next several years slowly working our way around the loop in our newly purchased 4788, spending the other half of each year living in our vintage bus conversion.

        We blogged about our general plans here.

        We are in Punta Gorda, FL now for at least the next month (we just picked up the boat Friday and have a LOT to learn!) - and we probably will be in FL for many months after, maybe starting with the Little Loop through the Okeechobee and down to the Keys.

        It would be awesome to meet up with some other BOC members as we travel. If you see us in your area, reach out and say hi.

        Cheers all!

            Indeed we have started - we've made it from Punta Gorda, FL to Ft. Myers so far - 48.8nm.

            We'll have a blog post up soon detailing the first leg of our trip.

            So far we are loving boat life!

            Cheers,

              Glad to hear it. We are still two years away, but really looking forward to it.

                Are you going to cut across thru Lake Okeechobee or go down thru the keys?

                I'm curious how long it is to get across. I just bought a canal house in Cape Coral and plan to cruise to the Bahamas frequently for scuba adventures. First, must find boat!

                  If the lake levels are high enough, we'll be aiming to do Lake Okeechobee. I think we'll spend 4-5 days crossing, but I haven't worked out the trip planning yet.

                  Cheers,

                  - Chris.
