It is going to take me a while to sort out all the good ideas I picked up. Cabin heat! Solar! Aux engine! More batteries! Sliding windows! New paint! Auto pilot! Fix that exhaust!
Why? The Hobbs has almost 6000 hours on it and no hydrolock ever! Close enough! Leave it alone and get out there! I'm exhausted just thinking about it all.

I MUCH prefer taking five or six days at 6 knots than waiting for ferries that may not come. It took all day Friday to get there and all day Sunday to get home. Granted those were leisurely days and I combined a lot of visiting with friends old and new. Sure glad I went, though. Plenty of laughs and some very sobering tales of Boating Gone Wrong. Kerry, as bad as your blown football muffler story was, I heard a worse one. You are officially Number Two now. And I know of at least two more of those suckers still in service.

Voted Best in Show/Most Improved/amateur classification (Matt Lewis? I forget.)
