Deb and I left Anacortes in 2002, went down the coast to San Diego, across the Pacific, and the Indian Ocean, up the Red Sea to the Med, and have been here for 3 years. Next fall, it's across the Atlantic to the Caribean, then to the East Coast of the US. Most importantly, we forgot to mention the boat - WINGS. Just shy of 15 meter. Only 4 of them built. We call her a Taiwan Swan - designed by Frers but Taiwan built in the mid 1980s.

Seeing your photo of petting nurse sharks I thought you might find this one interesting. The aussie fisherman depicted saved this shark by extracting the entangled Great White from a net.Thereafter the GW followed the fisherman whenever he left port, even letting the man pet it.
