Daddy'sFarm gets back on the water

hi -- I am Denny Rodebush, captn of Daddy'sFarm and my constant on board "electrician": is Buddy my 10 year old boat dog. Our last trip was in 2006 cruising the great loop. See for our pictures and log. It is a trip you shouldn't miss.
After 5 years of short trips on Tampa bay it is time to head for the Bahamas. I have been getting the boat ready for months and I feel confident Daddy'sFarm is up to the task.. She is a 48' Uniflite "Yachtfisher" built in 1980. It is comfortable, safe, and mechanically sound.
The plan is to leave Tampa on Saturday, February 25 and start heading south. We will turn east at Ft. Myers then across Florida via the Okeechobee waterway to Stuart, then south to Ft Lauderdale to change crew members. After waiting for a "weather window" we will go where the breezes blow and little umbrella drinks are a requirement.
