Titusville - A day where nothing has to get done

The area around the marina is lined with cookouts and picnic tables, a nice touch
Time for a true vacation day. Hopefully the new transmission is winging its way west from Denmark and actually arrives on time Tuesday. We already have the aft oil seal in hand so we're all set provided the transmission arrives. Fleetwing should be in fine shape once both are repaired for our trip to Key West. We've tentatively schedule the repair for Wednesday and to repair the oil seal and transmission at the same time. We plan on leaving for New York on Thursday morning, at least that is the intention.
Easier with the cart

So I thought we had enough excitement for awhile and we took the day off from boat chores. We've had steady stream of people drop by that have been reading the blog or used my cruising guide. It's always fun to meet new cruisers so if you're in the area, please drop by to say hello. We are at slip A43.

The alligator seems to have disappeared so the divers were around the last two days scrubbing boats and replacing zincs. With temperatures in the 70's, the weather is just phenomenal. Matthew was bad but otherwise it's been great. On Friday we pick up another car for the weekend and we'll do some more exploring.
