  • Captain David Whitten pulled up anchor and got his crew of four back under way Monday, June 15 beginning the second leg on their journey to the Gulf of Mexico on a hand made packet boat — the adventure of a lifetime.

If an older couple could do it, Whitten said, he believes five strapping young men and not quite so young men could certainly do it.
