Despite the horrendous banking fraud which I am fighting, thousands of dollars have been taken from my account. It’s fraud. The FBI, police and the bank are all trying to solve it. On top of all of this, I have been in the ER 3 times this month. So, what am I going to do?

Well, on Sunday Makaira, my 26 ft. Andros with me at the helm are departing Florida to West end Bahamas and then making the run to Marsh Harbour, about 200 miles total. It will be extremely hard on me and I pray for the strength to pull it off.

A dear friend has offered me his home to stay in at no charge at Marsh Harbour, this is what makes it possible. The condo which I live in is working on the elevator from September 11th to October 20th and they’ve offered me zero relief. I will not be able to get into or out of my unit without an elevator. Can you believe that in today’s time you can cut off a paraplegic from his domicile and offer zero relief?

So, in many ways I’m down and out and have tremendous pressure from every quadrant. What am I going to do if I have a medical problem in the Bahamas? What am I going to do if Erma decides to dance on the Bahamas? All of these are legitimate questions. The answer is very easy, I will fight, move forward and I will do what has to be done.

There are many people who follow me on Facebook who have more severe medical problems than I have and in my present condition, probably have more money than I do, which is hardly anything after this last debacle. I am down, I am beat up, I am tired, I am disappointed and very disillusioned.

So, everyone, watch me go to sea, watch me cross a rough part of the world between Florida and the Bahamas, watch me run Makaira down the Abacos and right to Marsh Harbour. So out of the dust I sail, I hope it’s an example for anyone who might find themselves in my position. I will advise all of you during my adventure and I will take all your souls with me to give me strength.

Never say never, never give up, if you attained your dreams, you haven’t dreamt high enough. Forward and upwards, God Bless you all!
