My ship was originally scheduled to sail from Jacksonville today, and do
donuts in the ocean for a few days before heading up to Charleston on
Sunday. All that has been chucked out the window; now we're to leave
tomorrow (07 April) in the late afternoon and head straight for
Charleston, so there won't be any new wet grid squares along the way. 


We'll get to Charleston early Friday morning, and I'll sign off the ship
on Sunday. The shipyard we're going to is in grid FM02. That grid isn't
super rare, but it's not all that common on the birds either. I should
be able to get on from FM02 at various times on Friday and/or Saturday
before I jump the rail. Unfortunately, there will still be a lot going
on aboard the ship, so I can't in good conscience predict what pass(es)
I'll be on.


My XYL Cori has fully recovered from her shoulder surgery and will pick
me up when I leave the ship on Sunday. We'll drive to south Florida
where I will get a physical check up I need for renewing my merchant
marine documents that will be expiring this summer. Our driving route
will be FM02 - FM03 - EM93 - EM92 - EM91 - EM90 - EL99 - EL98 - EL97 -
EL96 - EL95. If you need any of those, send me an e-mail and I'll see if
we can work something out.


Pse note that my shipboard e-mail address will remain valid while I'm
off the ship, but I will not have access to it until I return to the
ship in several months. After Saturday (09 April), pse use my "regular"
e-mail address, claryco @ aol.com.


Now it's back to working on the logs...


73 for now,


Jim, ND9M / VQ9JC
