As my last post promised, we were going to see a major rain event yesterday and today. Tropical storm Bonnie, as you can see by the historical track came across Florida with the center being just south of us. BUT the rain was to the north of her, so we caught a few trailing showers and not much wind.
Since I'm in South Carolina, I had 1st Mate Alex clean up Panacea's decks and remove the final bit of canvas and such. When I called to check on Bonnie yesterday, he was hangin' on the dock with Capt. John of All In watching the sun pop out and telling me he got all the work done, but nothing was happening. Bad news for Alex who was dripping in sweat and pooped, but good news for all the people and boaters in Fort Myers Beach.
So another storm moves on into the Gulf of Mexico and will be bumping into the Louisiana coast later today and tonight. She is a pretty weak storm and besides some water pouring down, should move inland and die soon.
I'll keep you posted as always on the workings of FantaSea Sailing and will stand by the phone as we continue booking for the fall.
I'll see you on the dock…
