Jennifer - why not take a couple of minutes and update your profile. That part that reads "Boat: none" needs to be brought up to date!

In fact, if you can find the time, start a thread on the type and length of vessel you now own, letting everyone know why you selected her, and maybe a little about where you hope to cruise and when. We all feel like we went through the pins-and-needles delivery with you, waiting for a successful outcome, so we'd like to have all of the details.

"Your vision becomes clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks within, awakens."
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961)

And don't forget the nail biting finish with a late season hurricane entering the gulf two days after landfall (whew!).

Administrative Note:

I moved a number of posts by Skip and others on the nitty-gritty of SPOT Messenger operation to a separate thread of their own, since they were tangential to the intent of Jennybug's thread. They can be found here...

SPOT Messenger Operation?
