We'd been here before, Clewiston, over a year ago. Captain Randy brought us here on our first big day across the state to bring Cat-n-Dogs to Palmetto. November of 2018. We didn't stop on our way over during the loop -- we were making long run days to get to Stuart. We're taking a slower pace this time.
|After! Spiffy, no?|
Hectic start to the day. We stayed at the LaBelle Port Inn, which is an odd hotel and convention space smack in the middle of nowhere. It seemed weird when we got there, but it was clean and convenient to the boat. We weren't murdered in our sleep, so, you know, a plus.
|These she is, stuck. The carrier broke down!|
That's when we hit hitch #1. The carrier stopped working. People milled about, scratched their heads, tried this and that. Then they wired the remote in and managed to get it over the pit. Then it wouldn't lower all the way. Thankfully, it did work (and didn't drop the boat!) and we were underway around 10 am.
