Miami Beach Marina

Yesterday's long run from Marathon Marina was capped off by an unnerving and humbling attempt to back Istaboa into the strong tidal currents at Miami Beach Marina. After that aborted attempt, we took a t-head that was meant for another boat.
Marina management was on the radio actively objecting to our decision, but sometimes it's best to ask for forgiveness and permission be damned. This was one of those times.
Then a nasty thunderstorm cranked up and marina management finally decided to relent and turn off the radio. We rode out that storm on the t-head. An hour or so later the thunderstorms finally eased up and the tide went slack. We calmly moved to our assigned slip. You gotta love doing this stuff.
