Worked for a while in Cracker Boy's in Ft Pierce. DIY yard on Taylor Creek.

Wonder if it's still there?

I haven't been there, but Cracker Boy has a web presence with two locations listed; Ft. Pierce and Riviera Beach; listed on ActiveCaptain too.  I am familiar with Riverside and the people there, and they are less expensive IIRC.

One of my South Florida Boat Friends took a spin around my boat and sent me the vid!!!

I will see her and attempt to move her tomorrow.  The Coconut Grove Arts Festival is going on and the bayshore is practically shut down. No parking at Dinner Key Marina, of course.  The boat will be at Dinner Key for 3 or 4 weeks while I watch for a weather window to move her to Fort Pierce.

Sorry, I have two threads going. 

I posted a couple links under "Bubba the Pirate Blog"
http://sailfar.net/forum/index.php?topic=4609.0

I have not moved her yet. The interior is a little rougher than I had imagined with my rose colored telepathy. There is some work to do before I can move her. I'm working on getting the bottom cleaned off in the water and checking on the electrics. I believe the batteries are almost dead from neglect. I'm going down this weekend to do some work. She will be in the Dinner Key mooring field for a month or so as I'm working now in Fort Pierce. 

Best laid plans and all that rot, but life is good. I'll get her to Fort Pierce shortly, haul her and do the work. I figure I have about 8 months of work - which probably means 12 or 14.  :o

I'm working on a couple more blog posts now.
