Jolly Roger broke rudder and holed hull around Placida and has dropped out or is doing repairs. see his blog
Confirming that JollyRoger did drop out due to the extent of damage to his boat.
Good morning everyone. My boat is watertight again and will have time to dry on the ride back to Fla.
I had no other choice but to do repairs and could not do them on the water but they are done and I am heading back. Only thing that I will be looking for on the way done is a place to buy a couple of mirage drives. Hopefully a store will have them in stock. I should be getting underway around 12 am.
If nothing else at least I can enjoy some more friendship and meeting new folks and see everyone coming into Largo. I will call you Paddledancer if I make it back to CP1 and can launch. I understand that CP1 will be closed by then but I have to try. I'll go rouge until and IF I can catch up. If not I'll self rescue again and drive to Largo.
This is just a heads up since there is no guarentee that I will even make it back down, lets just see what happens. I'll beg for mercy later if all goes to the new plan.
I will have my tracker on so if you want to know my whereabouts and progress.
Thank you my friends,
Check with Grande Tours. They may have your drives. Paddle dancer saw they had some.
Thanks OrdieO, Will call and see if I can get them and what time they close. getting an earlier start. Will be leaving here at 9am. Thanks, Roger
I will now have phone contact only so will be in touch to PaddleDancer if all goes well.
JollyRoger is here at CP2... I haven't talked to him as he's fast asleep on the starboard trampoline!
I had word that he had dropped, but he can get back in the Ultimate Florida Challenge if we can verify that he has a working SPOT. I see one track point from last night.
JollyRoger has arrived at CP2 and is retiring from the UF2012 due to hull damage.
