Although Nancie and I have sold our boat and "swallowed the anchor", I've continued to comment and keep track of my liveaboard friends, but I no longer see any activity on this site. Is this just a temporary lack of news? What's happening out there on the water?

I am around and read the posts but have not replied. I am busy repairing damage to the residence from Matthew and Irma. I am finishing up the guest bathroom. I have a hall, closet, spare bedroom, and master bedroom to repair. The I am permitted to work on my floating dock that was destroyed and Scallywag. Scallywag has been neglected due to the work in the residence. When I moved to this location, it took me a day to cut my lawn. Now it takes 3 days. I still read and wish I was doing it and not read about it.

I'm still here, but tied up in a slip here in Georgia. Really not much to report. Happy that it has been a quiet hurricane season for us. The poor Abacos took a beating, and we have made 2 donations hoping to help someone there in a small way.

We are enjoying marina life, but would like to get moving again. Unfortunately, age is catching up to us. I need to have cataract surgury, and my wife needs a hip replacement.

I sure don't know what the future holds for us. We will deal with the medical needs for now and see where we go from there. For now, still enjoy sundowners in the cockpit regularly. It is beginning to cool off, so maybe I will catch up on the ongoing list of projects. We would like to make at least one more run down to the Exumas. Time will tell.

My cataract surgury was a Disney World ride! ...an exciting success and I was reading the restaurant menu that night without glasses! Nancie's hip replacement was just as successful, but it didn't allow her to return to the agility that would allow her to be safe on a deck at sea or even be able to easily move on and off the boat at a dock. We're all on the clock,- enjoy all your times!

Did Nancy have her hip done in Florida? Looking for recommendations. I know we will need to move off the boat for that, but was hoping to move back aboard after time?

We were pleased with SE Orthopedics (2627 Riverside Ave. #300 - next to St. Vincent's Hospital) for Nancie's hip replacement as well as a meniscus tear repair for me a few years earlier. I would add that Nancie also has post-polio syndrome. If she had had the hip replacement only, we would have easily remained on the boat.

okay, cataract surgery for both of us in the near future. I am still bouncing off of walls, so the Admiral is not hip on Scallywag. I found out I need to stay away from the water. No more swimming in pools, rivers, or the ocean. Body sores can be easily infected. Booked a big ship cruise in December. Returning to the same old ports but love walking around.

Not quite retiring to fuddy-duddydom quite yet. Plan is to cruise a week or so this fall/winter before heading up east coast in Spring, perhaps the loop if the Admiral can stand me that long. Still doing projects. We’ll be selling our remaining dirt residence and living aboard till we find a place without Hurricanes and Red Tide, which by-the-way, has just now reappeared in both Ft. Myers and Clearwater areas. :shock: Here we go! :roll:
