A very happy Captain Kevin. "Island Hopper" ran well with no problems during our journey to Longboat Key Moorings. Tate the "Bird Dog" has also enjoyed his boat trip.
Tonight we will be be toasting the arrival of "Island Hopper" to her winter berth with a bottle of Schramsberg, Blanc De Blanc, Champagne, given to us by our friends at Ohio River Launch Club. Cheers!! Thanks everyone! The champagne was great!!! We didn't crack the bottle on the boat, but drank every drop. After our toast and a beautiful sunset, we grilled steaks on the boat. The past 4 weeks have gone so quickly.
