After months of keeping in touch, we were excited to hear that the 'Crew of Blue' was preparing to move the boat down to the west coast of Florida to continue the refit in warmer weather during the winter. We made plans to meet up with them in LaBelle as they passed by crossing the Okeechobee Waterway. Figuring they were probably weary from the hard cruise they had been on for weeks we decided to put on a dinner for them when they arrived. We prepared a tasty steak and potato supper with key lime pie for desert and then set about helping them with a few chores. Electric Blue had a guest on board, Robert Brown, who video recorded a portion of the trip, across the Okeechobee Waterway. Our meeting was included in one of the segments.
