New transmission on the way!

We've located a transmission and it's on the way. It should be here in the morning. When it show up, they are coming over with the transmission, and machinist. There are a couple things to be custom made, then we can begin putting it back together. We could be going by the first of the week.

Once it's together, we'll be going right down the river into the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone now is convinced that the ICW is not the way to get across the Gulf of Mexico. We'll be going around the tip of the Mississippi River - the 4th time for me, 2nd for Nellie and Zaach, and the first for the couple on "Anticipation", who are patiently waiting for us to make repairs.
