Days in Ft. Lauderdale

Today we take Antares to a marina to be hauled out , have her bottom painted and a few minor repairs. We’ll go around 2pm at high tide. The bridges close for 2 hours from 4-6pm. Rush Hour

She’ll probably be back in the water next week and then we’ll move aboard.

Jeff and I are studying for a ham license. We take our test on Tuesday. I’m doing every thing I can but study. I just can’t get excited about volts and amps. I think I’ll play solitaire for a couple of hours. Then I’ll study.
