Nice Dave. I'm with Mark - the good that you've done will come back around.

Life may not fair, and you may not always be rewarded for your good deeds; but it might be a tad cynical to expect that you would be punished for them.

On another subject: Never make fun of a true cynic’s mother ... insult something he cares about instead.

We hope to have it back to him in a couple of weeks.

Good for you.

Re: Dinghy Recovered in Chesapeake

Nice job! It might be an idea to place a flyer in Bacons, as well as contact the local free sailing rag Spinsheet to see if they will run a PSA in the letters section in order to maybe locate the owner...

Re: Dinghy Recovered in Chesapeake

I lost my dinghy down here in Florida. Could you come down and help me find it ? Seriously , it is good to see there are still some good people out on the water, given some of the stories we read about here on forum .
