Before we left for Mexico
in 2005 I "sold" my Catalina 22 to my son. He still has it in his yard in Clovis. And he keeps it in better shape than I ever did. And, when he has time, he sails
it better than I ever did.
Well, I'll be... welcome to the halls of CF, Sam. And yes, I too look back on those days fondly. I learned a lot from that boat and had a hell of a lot of fun in her.
I'm a mere 77 now, so will try to be respectful to you, but old habits die hard!! Looking forward to some exchanges of ideas. I take it that you still have Catch the Wind
; that's loyalty in spades, and good onya, mate.
Cheers for now,
