    Relocated Ditch Rider to Key Largo

    After almost a year of work rehabbing and refitting the Gibson 50 we purchased we finally got Ditch Rider relocated to our new dock at Manatee Bay in Key Largo.

    We did the trip from West Palm Beach in three days and stopped in Coral Gables to watch our daughter compete in a sailing regatta.

    If there are any other houseboaters puttering around the Upper Keys then please get in touch.

    I have been eating Florida Key Shrimp here in Pensacola.

    It is my favorite.

    Just peel and saute in Olive Oil, no seasoning. Those puppys are sooo sweet.

    We get them here for $3.29 per pound.

    Just finished off 5 pounds last night, and will stop and get some more on the way home tonight, as we can not get them all year long.

    Thanks. She's not bad for being 14 years old. It was alot of work getting her back into shape after we purchased her... Looking forward to actually using her!

    Thanks Dan.. We worked hard to bring her back... The previous owners neglected her for years.

    I won't print what our dockage is but I promise it is affordable... I'd love to have some other Gibsons down here.

    We're right next to the little beach, pool and hot tub!!!!
