106 miles to Kenosha & Washington Island side trip

I pulled Pura Vida out with the Travel Lift at Manitowoc Marina to replace zincs and inspect the running gear after almost 4,000 miles of looping.  The bottom was in great shape, all gear tight and straight.  Gotta love a Hatteras and dependable GPS’s!  Manitowoc Marina has been great to me and ive enjoyed staying here!

old zinc did its job, compared to the new one!  Still a few barnicles on the hull from the salt water earlier this year.  Going to have my friends at Dog River Marina in Mobile, AL do a fresh bottom job when I get back.

beautiful Washington Island is located about 7 miles northeast of the tip of Door Peninsula in Door County, Wisconsin.  The island has a year-round population of 660 people.  We were welcomed as family because George has been great friends with all the people up here for many years Kap’s Marina, 920-847-2640 is an amazing location. I cant wait to come back!  They can accomidate all size boats here, the on site restauraunt here is wonderful!

Todays Run was 106 miles, smooth all day.  Got into Kenosha around 1800 and got a slip at South Port Marina.  You can see the entrance and slip layouts below, met the owner he is very nice.   He was happy to have us stay 2 nihts because of the weather.  They have hot tubs and a pool.  Facilities are in great shape it is end of season so staff is sparce but great marina.
