Captains Richard Gosier and Scott Malison are off on an adventure this week. They are taking Elizabeth Storm down to Florida staying close to shore and sprinting port to port between storm systems. They left Fall River just as chunks of ice started flowing down the Taunton River. Stopping in Newport for fuel and overnight dockage, the pair took time out to give an interview to the Daily News before taking off.
By the time that you read this, Elizabeth Storm should be slowly motoring down the intracoastal waterway towards her winter home in Pompano Beach, Florida.
