Hi Bill, You're a guy in the "know" about such things. Suky interested in a Pearson 323 (in the Dominican Republic), you know anyone with one? She'd like to sail one, between here and Chesapeake Bay. Any sites she should be looking at for info on one? Thanks, Terri

Cptn. Bill,
What did you think of Marrero's Mansion? I've checked it out on the internet and it looks like a nice place to stay. Last time in Key West we stayed at the Key Lime Inn.

Hi Bill, hope you and Andrea had a great Thanksgiving. How's the weather up there? (grin). Did you sell your boat or did you decide to keep it?
