Excepts from Adventures of Ruby J
"Four Months! Four months on a boat sounded like an eternity, but that's exactly what we did and we loved every minute. It seemed absurd to load two adults and two teenage boys into a 25 foot boat and head south, but it was a tremendous experience! Even though the three males aboard were all over 6 feet tall, our pretty pocket cruiser gave us an adventure, and never left us feeling cramped or cranky.
We rented a diesel dually to haul our boat from its home on Lake Lanier, just north of Atlanta, Georgia, to a quiet little marina on the banks of the Manatee River in Palmetto, Florida. On a cool November morning we left Regatta Pointe Marina, followed the Manatee River until it led us to Tampa Bay, then we took a left onto the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and headed south.".
"After leaving the Sound, we were coming through the Miserable Mile, a very narrow channel, when a large cabin cruiser dashed ahead of us, creating a wake large enough to swamp our outboard".
"Eventually we made our way across Biscayne Bay, watching the lovely Miami skyline grow smaller and smaller off our stern. Ruby J pounded the whitecaps with her bow, lunging through crest after crest; she seemed to thrive on it ".
