    Watched the video. Nice pics, but with all of the s&^$ on the deck , it does indicate they have no clue

    Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    Guess what folks? Some retired Dr. in St Pete just sold them a 1986 Cheoy Lee Pedrick 36 for $1. He wants them to fulfill their dream.I read it this AM in Tampa Bay Times. Their POS is still in the Pass, and should be cleared next week per Corps of Engineers. Just great, bigger boat and still little experience. I'll make sure to watch out for these "sailors" . Hope they leave the dog with someone. Couple whose dream boat sank gets a bigger, better boat for a buck.html

    Just read the story in today's Tampa Bay Times. A sad tale, but after reading, my reaction was, "What could possibly go wrong?" Old boat, little experience, at night going through unfamiliar inlet. Hit something to cause keel to depart? 11411 Chart shows 10' through entrance and drawbridge, then 4' to ICW. Hindsight, Pass A Grille much easier, and no shoaling
