We hung out together in Mexico back in the late 80's and I'd love to find him again. Google
concerns itself with a bloody golfer of the same name, and some lawyer, and a lot of non-sailors of the same name. So, despite the Power of the Internet, personal contact might be the only way!
Yes it was the one with Joel on board. Last I heard of him was that he had divorced his wife and stayed in Thailand
but that is it. I didn't really keep touch since I was not a boat owner but a crew. I caught up with Seahawk Brian and MA they are currently doing a Pacific circle. They are in the Phillipines headed for Japan
and then back to WA. I can email
them and see if they have any contact info for Joel.
I think that my original comment was mis interpreted. I am not against the internet. I'm not a Ludite. I just find it funny
that people are in exotic places and will spend hours and $$$ looking for internet service
. Then they will spend more time writing about it. I am more interested in the exotic place rather then the availability of the internet. It has been so nice to meet all of you here thru the internet. Rebel Hear I was listening to the radio
the other day and there was a segment on PBS that talked about a High school
senior who was getting into college by menas of a science project
that she had conceived of and ran. She studied Texting. The conclusion was that texting was a stimulant. I imagine the internet is the same.
