amazing work, love to see an old boat come to life again again in caring hands, its a truely amazing process to take part and to also that transformation. Congrats to you both, enjoy the many years joy you will have.
Yes the Satori was the one written about in the book The Perfect Storm.....I am very good friends of the Capt. Of course it is a book and was not as true as one would think...... we all have to make money one way or another.
It is nice to meet you.....I have just arrived in the area and stopped here in Stuart, so we are almost neighbors. So far I like the area. Now the heat.......it is hot....any advice for a northern??? I just finished making my awning larger for the midship area and now need to work on one for the bow area. My plan was to go to the Tampa/Ft Myers area but the oil spill changed that so I think I will hang here for awhile. I am very impressed with what you folks are doing to the Westsail you have. I was on a 32 ft Westsail called Satori years ago and fell in love with her. I knew she would take care of me in most any weather.And that she did I was in her with about 65 kt winds out in the bermuda triangle. She handled it like it was nothing. Amazed me...I would go back out in her in a minute.

"Mike if you're still out there we have recently ordered a new 38.1 and will try inland sailing on the Tennessee River away from the hurricanes. Yes you were correct regarding opportunity awaiting and keeping an open mind.
