Deb Deters, Vicki Stroven and Karen Dupy all took turns spending time living on the boat with Sheli and enjoying the many amenities of Longboat Key area. Everyday was sunny, hot and wonderful! Days were filled with walks, beach time, swimming in the Gulf of Mexico as well as the pools, exploring on the dinghy and of course shopping!
On March 3, the Captain returned to relax for a few days and reclaim his first mate! It was so exciting to have the Captain back that even the manatees showed up next to the boat to greet him.
On March 8, we sadly left the PV2 behind and flew back to Michigan. We will return in April to bring the boat to Charlotte Harbor where we will have it hauled out of the water and stored on land for the summer.
