|March 22nd Weather Update|
Wednesday's cruises saw breezy and some showers. We had winds form the south and waves 2-3 ft. We were able to keep a good ride by running north and south keeping the wind on our bow and stern.
Today's cruises will be the same with winds for the south at 10-15 kts. Waves will be 2-3 feet and we will again run north and south for a good ride.
Operations: (Lifting the ship) US flag ships are required by the US Coast Guard to be lifted out of the water and inspected 2 times in every 5 years. Victory will be completing this task in mid-May. We will take the ship to Jacksonville and she will be lifted from the water for inspection. During this time we will also clean the bottom, propellers and rudders as well as paint the entire bottom....a marine facelift you might say.... This entire evolution will take about 5 days...we will be posting our revised schedule for this time and special events soon....
