We spent 8 nights at marinas and 4 nights on the hook. The Outer Reef 700 performed admirably. With seven Outer Reef deliveries under my keel, I have had the good fortune to deliver three Outer Reefs this year alone.
The Outer Reef 700, like the other ORY models, is a well found long range yacht. Huge wide walk-around decks and high freeboard makes this a joy to operate and peace of mind that my crew are safe on deck. The 700 rides extremely well at anchor. On this particular voyage, we consumed a total of 1,978 gallons on 2,200 gallons capacity leaving 222 gallons in reserve; which equates to 27.75 hours. At 8 GPH, that's an addition 249.5 miles.
After dockage, tips to dockhands and crew travel, we arrived in Fort Lauderdale (from Huntington, New York) with $11.78 left over from the $2,000 advance.
All in all, it was a great trip on a wonderful vessel. I am looking for my next Outer Reef adventure.
The rest of the trip, after Georgia, was pretty straight forward (pun intended). It's really great to have a 70 foot yacht with 5 foot draught under my feet. It makes the Intra-Coastal Waterway an excellent alternative to the dash and bash in more-than-marginal weather.”
