Home at Last!

My new Nomad is at home on Fontana St. in Punta Gorda Isles. My friend Ron and I moved the Nomad down inside the Burnt Store Isles canal system to Fontana Dr. in the Punta Gorda Isles canal system. It was taking me 45 minutes to get from the Windmill Village Marina out to the harbor. This new dock will get me there in less than 10 minutes.

The new slip will help pay for itself in gas savings. It took us 1 hour to get from it’s location in BSI to Fontana Dr., hope I never have to do that again. This boat is very sluggish at low speed (<3.5knts).

Edit: Should have mentioned this , it may be sluggish at low speed but I do have a bow thruster to get me around the tight corners of the canal system.

  1. Hi Don. The new yacht looks good, but I knew it will look even better when you worked on it a little. Stay well. Chuck (C&D).

  2. Lots ‘o things to do on her, but her condition is better than anything I have had. Planning a trip to Mobile and another to the Keys/Bahamas. Does Embraer still have that meeting in Marco Island every year? That would be fun to crash.
