Hi h, thanks for the reply.

Not on the site for quite awhile.  I see others in the old group are not on much either.

I gotta get the boat out soon.  I have been teaching art a lot, and busy on  Facebook.  I think everyone went to Facebook.

So are you at the new floating docks?

Hi H,

Thanks for your message last night I wasn't awake that late.  I bought a boat around Thanksgiving time and am learning to sail on that boat.  I took a few lessons from my friend, but I have crew that are also teaching me on my own boat.  I just have to get my heat exchanger back on after a cleaning so I can go sailing again.

Hey h, haven't spoken to you for awhile...what repairs have you done>/\?  I finally got the stuffing box changed out to a dripless, and had the bottom painted.  Hope to take her out as weather cools a bit.  Really hot weather here in USA.
