Former Crew Salute: Toni Payne

Toni’s at the helm during the Gulf Stream crossing. She’s probably thinking, “I used my vacation days for this??” The crossing was wet and a little wild. Randall kept telling me not to get off course or the current would shoot us past Freeport and then we’d be back to Brunswick. We pulled into Nassau Harbor with another boat which left Florida about the same time. We commented on how light the boat traffic was on both the Gulf Stream and the Exuma passage but it was not until today that we overheard at the local beach bar that there are 12 boats sitting in Lake Worth, FL still waiting on calm enough weather to cross. Toni left us yesterday to go back to the world of daily showers, fresh fruit and veggies and flooring which does not move. Before she left, we had several days of sand castle building, island hiking and a couple of Bahama’s Kalik’s. Keep us in mind every morning, Toni, as you pour the coffee. If you ever get tired of the cup just sitting there without moving while you pour, come on back.

    >Thanks guys for letting me barge in like that. It was a fantastic time. I've been thinking though, you'd get more work done if you'd put the kids on a liquid diet and dangle an IV around their neck! I hear "I'm hungry" in my sleep still. Jacob, do your homework 🙂
    Love you all, Enjoy.
