We had a great short sail into the bay with the nicest young couple who have made their lives part of the water. Their southern hospitality was apparent and the craftsmanship of the boat by the captain was superb. Thanks

Captain Andy is a good guy, with a very comfortable, safe cruiser. We had a great time out in the gulf and over to crab island. Felt safe, and at ease the entire time. Will definitely sail with Captain Andy and the Emerald Lady again!!
