How You Might Be Able to Track Us Down:Cell Phone
- our number is 912 577-8941. It works while we are around Florida, etc. It also works in the Bahamas. Although, roaming charges apply and it is VERY expensive. Text messages are only $0.50 and the roaming fee for a voice call costs us about $3 per minute. So, if an emergency or something is urgently needed, do call us. If not so important, text us or email.Best Bet

- If we are near any land, an area marina may know of us, or they might be willing to radio other boaters who may have seen us or know where we are anchored/moored. A marina may also be able to raise us via our VHF radio. Each morning, we listen to Chris Parker, www.mwxc.com
out of Lakeland, Florida (Carribbean Weather Center) for weather. Often he announces he has an emergency message for a certain boat. His listeneners are everywhere so someone may have seen us or know where we are. If you know we are in the Bahamas, "BASRA" headquartered in Nassau, is like the US Coast Guard. They may be helpful if we are in the Bahamas. If we’re in US waters, the Coast Guard nearest our location may be willing to try to raise us on the VHF radio. Area marinas, SeaTow, BoatUS, also may assist. Just tell everyone the nature of the emergency and that you are trying to contact a 42' Robertson Caine, "Leopard", sailing catamaran with aqua sail covers – named "Meant To Be", US Coast Guard Registration No. 1188210, and Brunswick, GA shown on the back as the home port.Stay in touch, keep us posted on what is happening in your lives. We are always are so happy to hear how (and what) everyone is doing!!
