Sounds like a plan to me. First I need to weld all the in-deck and thru-hull fittings and openings shut. Then I'll fill the entire cuddy with fuel and rig a cargo parachute for a drift sock. Then I'll make a steel cage to hold me at the wheel. Then I'll make out a new will because I think the old one still has my ex-wife in it.

Cheers
See you at Freeport in a few hours.

things don't look too bad for this weekend. 2s within 20 miles and 3 out to 60 miles. That should be very fishable.

LOL. I got the offshore report for off Port Mansfield during Hurricane Brett. It flashed Hurricane Warning and seas 60-70 feet. I am going to follow the boueys to see what they record.

Those big seas will do the jigging for you with a 40-50ft rise and fall every 10 seconds.
I have been in 20-25ftrs for 3 days on the way to mex one time. It is not a whole lot of fun..
