Same for me. Just send a pic of your new boat whenever you get back on the water. Or help out someone else in need if and when you can.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

For Gil, if he is still monitoring this thread:

For those folks who don't want refunds, how about sending the cash to the SAR folks who tried to help you? Those folks (I don't remember the name and don't want to spend the time ferreting it out) are always in need of funding.

Great suggestion Jim. We are not hopeing for a refund from GIL as we are sure he may be struggling to keep his world afloat about now and should Dagny be located he may reap some small benefit from the funds on hand. That being said, this is Gil's call and we respect his decision whatever that might be.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Not sure how recent this was but I read it recently where a Hugo boss open 60 was just found in Patagonia about 10,000 miles and 10 years later. So sometimes they get found but no where and when you expect it.

Again so sorry, maybe time to hit the respawn button and start the plan over?

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Humm...a unix systems person. Typically these guys are needed around the clock 24 X 7 365. New system updates are usually applied off hours and on weekends. Now with the internet they are treated like an Uber driver. I was not an AIX system person like you but was an application support person on an AIX box that tied into a mainframe. So I know your work kinda sucks.

Good luck Gil. Hope you can get a few more clients and save for another boat. But reaching escape velosity is not easy.

I am 60 years old and will be moving to the east coast of Florida in 3 1/2 months. Once there I will be at a decision point on what kind of boat to buy. I will be joining a sailing club to get out on the ocean. If I like it I just might buy a small 33' - 35' sailboat. (Other boat types include a fishing boat or worse yet a poontoon boat).
I may not like being on the ocean.

You just never know what lays around the next corner.

Hang in there.

Like I said Gil. Put my contribution towards your next boat. Hoping to see pics on this thread no matter how long or short of time it takes. Good luck.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Hi again Gil.

I just read your blog about your temporary life in France. France doesn't sound like a great place to relaunch from. Even if you have free housing having no income is not going to get you back out on the water.

Can I suggest that given your UNIX skill you look at working in either London or Germany. I would think that hooking up with a contracting company in the UK would get you a lot of work even if you have to work on-sight for a bit.

All the best,
Chaya

Tragedy Strikes.

If you are a UNIX guru you may want to look into deep water drilling. There are BOP control systems with UNIX control systems.
