A belated Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for all the references to books and particularly the state law education site regarding boating laws. I'll have to look into that one. Been busy because I've had 2 grandchildren born within the last 3 weeks, so between traveling and visiting, Thanksgiving and working on the boat I haven't spent much time on line........ replacing some chainplates and re-mounting a outboard engine crane on the boat amongst other things. Hope you had a great holiday.

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well.
I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left me handicapped. I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
"Finally got back on Seaknots. Boat is sold to a family w no experience. He is currently, bringing the boat up to new additions. And doing a great job. We could use some advice on sail cleaning. Any experience in that let me know. Are you…"
