We plan to leave Crestview around 1:00 Thursday to be at Hals Bar that night or first thing in the AM. Motor running around 200-220 in sea trial last weekend . Going to Fort Walton Bch for impeller today hopefully that will fix it . I haven't replaced it for years and has not been run for over 2 years.

Just finished sea trial in a tropical storm in the bay I got my overheating fixed . INNOCENCE seems to be back . She tied up at our condo now we can see her out the front window. If the weather gets better we will take a moonlight ride tonight if not we will run her out to Destin for Breakfast that is about 15 mile round trip . Cant wait to get up to the Gathering next week see all our old friends and new ones we haven't met yet. Long over due break for us. I love woodwork and building things but I am worn out. We estimated some where around 1300-1400 hours to repair the fire damage.

Mr Hot Rod isn't ready for a road trip either. I'm really going to miss the gang and the usual antics.

Hope to see you next year !

Have a great Gathering and post lots of photos and videos !
