Shepherd Team returns from Florida!

well the great adventure is behind us - what a blast! Long drive south hauling 5 tons of boat and trailer but all went smoothly. Once in Jax we had a few issues to solve with the boat and we finally launched on Friday 18th. Ron arrived so we took a slow cruise to the city - all well.
