Offically USCG Captains!

Among other project this summer like exploring the NE USA, extending the boat 2.5' we endeavored to obtain our US Coast Guard Captains Licenses. The captains license project included back ground checks, a physical, drug test, extensive applications a trip to Boston, MA and seven exams. We made the stop in Miami here for the final step, the written exams. The exams required extensive study some pure memorization on obscure topics, but mostly the topics were germane to our chosen lifestyle afloat.

We are both relived to have the exams behind us and we are now looking forward to our next project of improving our spoken Spanish. We also hope to make more regular blog entries.

As soon as tomorrow we may head south through the Florida Keys to be followed shortly by a voyage across the Caribbean sea to Mexico. The next pressing question is where to spend Christmas... Key West, Mexico or Belize.
