It has been said if you make enough money to require a payment to Uncle Sam, then you are in good shape. Put the good with enough and you have the name of the boat I just purchased: Good Enough. Yipe, I am the proud owner of a Marples 35 wood/epoxy constant camber tri..... After a successful sail home from the Rio Dulce, she'll be renamed SPRAY 3 (same as my Corsair was named).
SPRAY 3 represents my admiration for Joshua Slocum, the love of my husband who needed a mathematical enumeration (3, as in cubed) which represents: 3 hulls, 3 of my favorite type boats owned (Hobies, Supercats, and Corsair 28), my 3 loves (Danny, my dad and everyone else).
Not much else to say, I'm off to Guatemala with Captain Kirk, his son and my girlfriend Karen. Pray the next wave of tropical depressions abate until we're safely home. Current float plan is to leave Rio Dulce on Saturday, July 8 and head north around the west side of Cuba then north east with a final run up the east coast of Florida, entering at Ft. Pierce for the last day's sail to our home dock in Palm Bay, Florida. Despite the fact that another friend Maryanne refers to the accomodations as resembling the SS Minnow, let's hope this is not a 3 hour tour.
