Well, it's been a huge fight to get here, but as of right now, the house is ready, the kids are taken care of, the boat is packed, and we're heading off this morning. This is the first time in my life that I've had 32 days off in a row. Had to beg C-map to send me my chip. Got it yesterday - it works. The pool pump motor failed the night before last. We were heading across town on a short cut and I happened by an electric motor place on an industrial roadway. I stopped in - they had the motor. Gave me 4 seals. His 3rd guess was the right one. Installed the motor well into the evening yesterday. I'm taking the other 3 back this morning (they were loaners). Went to dinner last night with a couple of boating buddies - a HUGE front blew through and swept the deck clean of all tables, chairs, and people! We ran for cover. Glass was breaking, raw oysters were flying through the air! It was great! Got home at 2200 (10). Finished preparing the salt water aquarium for a month without care except for food and water. Bed at midnight. Up at 0550. Finished aquarium. Packed fishing gear. Woke wife up. Time to go! I'll keep in touch in this thread.
