Fort Myers Yacht Basin Marina, 1-5 and 6, 2015

Monday the 5th; we left about 09:00 at low tide and we still had 3.3' below our props. The winds were calm during the night but by 08:00 they picked up again but out of the south this time. It was early when we went through the "Miserable Mile" and this is the first time ever all the boats obeyed the No Wake zone. There were only 10 boats encountered but still that was good. It was in the mid 70's all day with the sun coming out sporadically most of the day otherwise, it was overcast. We got to the City of Fort Myers Yacht Basin Marina about 11:30, got fuel and a pump out and were in our slip by 12:15. As of yesterday, we had anchored 22 out of 26 days. It will be nice to be at a marina for a while. After settling in we spent the afternoon washing the boat and washing clothes. This evening we went to Joe’s Crab Shack for dinner.

  1. I have photos of your boat from when she was built. My dad bought her new in 1983 and we cruised her from Tampa up to Michigan, all over the Great Lakes and finally down to Alabama where she was sold to Gary Akin in 1994. Send me your email and I will get you some old photos. skycheney(at)msn.com
