I finally sold the Palani last night. Paying two slip fees was really a pain every month and just made it feel like I was stuck in limbo. Was a slow process grinding to get the funds to fix the Pomaika’i while having the huge overhead.
I’ve scheduled the yard in Ft Myers Beach to haul out the Pomaika’i on the 20th of July (getting me away from that dock fee for July as well). They’ll remove the transmission and send it to a Borg Warner shop in Ft Lauderdale. Not sure how long that will take but hopefully only a week or two as we’re starting to get into the hurricane season (and it’s supposed to be an active one this year according to the NOAA).
Then it’s back to the original plan of sailing it from Ft Myers through Key West and then up to Jacksonville.
