I love Cruiser's Forum!
Just have to say it out loud. The moderators, advisors, and all you folks out there who ask and answer (often times repeatedly) these most interesting and useful questions are a gift. You are also a lot of fun. The questions are sometimes ones that were kind of in the back of my mind and needed to be brought to the fore. Other times they are exactly what I wanted to ask but was reluctant to put out there. The answers are almost always smart, sincere and helpful.
So, thanks everyone for adding a few smiles and lots of valuable help and information to my cruising life.
I will put my question for today, "Why were only 55 of these boats made?" up as a separate thread.
