    I have one, pretty sure anyway, but have not used that feature. Usually we just call each other but I will read up on it and figure it out. I know Randy's spreadsheet had everyones MMSI number so I hope I can get it. It's a new Icom so I am sure it does it.

    you'll be able to cancel at BBG, just let them know..

    I remember going over 2 years ago when it was supposed to be 3-4 and was 8-10 in the Gulfstream... Was the scariest and longest trip I ever took and will never do it again... Instead of 2 hours was almost a 5, used just about 140 gallons of gas going up and down the waves and never being able to go on plane... Even coming out of the cut at Port Everglades, I wanted to turn around and head down the inside to the Keys.

    Sorry you had to cancel, but better safe ...

    What's the forecast for tomorrow? maybe you can try then..

    Tomorrow supposed to be better Barry, gonna call BBG now, sounds like that trip was worse, this was like a micro burst, 0 visibility, heavy rain with lightning coming/surfing back thru inlet, don't ever wanna do that again.

    The real problem was the period at only 5 seconds. Tomorrow is looking much better but I assume no one is going at this point?

    They called for 2-3's when we crossed to Bimini a couple of years ago....they were much bigger than that. We just decided to idle across....took 6-7 hours. One you get in the Lee of Bimini the seas lay down. I see the forcast still calling for 2-3's but the 5 second period is what sucks!

    Nothing wrong with Fort Lauderdale on Memorial Day weekend....or maybe a run to the Keys.

    Stick around FTL today head over and get a beer at the Elbow room and consider leaving tomorrow morning.
