When we pulled our SV Liberty into a marina in Clear Lake
Shores last July for a several month marina stay, by complete coincidence we ended up bow to bow with Larry's SV Liberty. We met while each doing boat projects, and we discussed his plans. The thing that amazes me most is to learn, from this post, that he is 74 years old! In all our many meetings on the dock
and at West Marine
while parts-chasing, I never would have guessed he was older than early 60s or so. He impressed me as someone who has what it takes to carry out this mission. I haven't read the linked article yet, but I do hope he got away from Texas
soon enough (we left in March) to get across the Atlantic safely.
All the best to you, Larry.
