sorry kenny for your loss, kinda wierd how they went kinda close together..??

anyways, I lost my mother last year, and although i wasnt close wither her, I now get to perpetuate whatever issues i had with her, now I have them with my brothers and sister, as they excluded me from her hospice care and her funeral...

my family died 3 days before my mother did... and now, my daughter hasnt talked with me since november.. she blew me off for my bday and holidays...

I truely have no family... and my friends are just that.. friends... oh well...

I believe I was meant to be alone and adventourous... why i never gravitated towards sailing before, i will never know...

and i cant wait to get onboard...

soulmates usually pass within 6 months if each other--is sad but the life doesnt feel right to them without the other--or so it was explained to me. is sad you lost both--mine are still here--for now-- dad is failing, momma has loong genes--
thankyou so much guys for the boost and music-- we should eb good now--- i am praying to the sea gods to take good care of every sailor and sailorette and all on the seas whether dock queens or bay bums or snotty yotties- all are of sea in some way.
world is a small pea in this universe and we are only but a tiny spec. boatman--i adore big feet and big mouths-- is like me!
these are awesome tunes!!!! thankyou all!!!!!
we on our way--will be 2-3 weeks then we be fixed. in mean time i am fixing the other problems as they arise, of course, and i will be sailing soon-- berg, i will let ye know when i am scheduled to eb out--i need to get there evening prior and dock in ways evening prior.... early in am we come out and get worked. then back i8nto water.. same day delivery.

yea, seasons..

and this too shall pass.. (my moms favorite saying)

Whatever happens happens...this will be one of my better moves or it wont.. either way. i will give it my all. and at the worst I will veg on a boat instead of a LAZ E BOY

Which i doubt...

I am relearing what i thought i learned before, and that was to be independant... (I originally thought it was from 'other people', *(not family). Now i am learning it is everyone...

I wont belaobor my depression and engativity more then i already have.. I do believe I am being positive with this move towards teh water and my participation here, and if i am not, you all can tap me on teh shooulder or slap my 'cross the face... and i will understand...

between the coiuple little slaps i already got, it wont matter 'cept to make me more motivated to get onboard...


ZEE, PLEASE make sure you try to time it so i can come on down to see your boat in the air, and even before then, as i will try to help out as much as i can, if not for that bigger project, for a smaller one.... I got a car and drive you around to get stuff for the project too, or whatever else...

But, i really would like to see the bottom and see the parts that are broken on your boat... and the replacement parts if possible... I cant quite understand how they work or how they are assembled...

It dont look hard as far as the documents i saw, but, reading and touching are two different things for me...

also, what are you doing with the cats during the haul out???

this event should occur within the 2 weeks after this one-- this week is busy for the yard , so is gonna be scheduled by kate when there is a not busy time. is good to see these parts on my boat , as they are fairly visible, as opposed to a boat like my ericson , or other performance types wherein they are hidden in tight places needing contortionists of minute sizing to fit and work in there... i have a lot of room ..
kat will be on a leash and harness and be with me..is just a day, so he is ok- or i might just place his dishes and stuff in my master stateroom for the day. i can close him in and he will be fine.

independence can be a good thing..makes ye stronger...

if ye come down in advance, might take the ride over to the yard with me-- or meet us at the yard in the early morning.i need to bring boat to yard in evening prior and place on ways for night then early early i get into sling.

i will do everything i can to make it down there... unfortunately, i can not miss or postpone my jan24 dr appointment...

i might postpone the wednesday appt but not the monday.. i have waited more then a month for that appointment as well and delay my move...

i would like to stay longer and save money, but, not sure how things work with my bank/lender/whatever and the longer i wait the more crazy i am going...

Zee,

I thought you had two boats.

If you sell the other maybe you will have enough to get stuff done?

Maybe berg would want it?

i really dont want to sail here... the water here sucks out loud!!!! my goal would be to figure out how to sail her to the gulf, carribean... and then any cost savings would be eaten up

there is a boat here that i could probably get for about $4k from a very interested seller, and it is sweet, with all kinds of nice stuff.. the harbor master couldnt stop talking about all the stuff the prior owner put into the boat and then never used as he was so old he hit another boat on his first trip out of the harbor, and caused $50k worth of damage to the other boat but nothing to his...

not even a mark...

now the guy is way too old, and hasnt been on board in a year... and the family is tired of paying slip and insurance fees... and now they have been trying to sell for about 5 months and craigslist and ebay... and no results yet, but they keep trying to talk me into getting her and staying here..
