Sorry about the delay folks but we have been crazy busy getting sorted and back on track.  So heres the update.  On Monday we had to drive to Baltimore to buy our second boat.  having to search and arrange to pay and pick it up whilst paddling and most the time being out of cell or internet range was difficult.  We did how ever find a suitable vessel and rushed up North to get it ASAP as we then had to cruise back down the Chesapeake to continue the paddle.  We launched the boat and then Ben drove the rental car back to the airport and the plan was to pick him up on the way past Annapolis.  I only made it about half a mile out from the boat ramp before one of the engines shut down and would not restart!!!! Panic Stations!!!! After driving it back to the boat ramp we discovered that the fuel lines were blocked so we replaced them but it did take most of the day.  Anyhoo we have a new boat and drove her all the way down to Ridge, Maryland and stayed at a wonderful place called Buzz's Marina.  Oh and check out the name!
