Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

My thoughts are with you, Marinet... wishing a speedy and good outcome for you. You have provided a wonderful bite by bite of your rebuild journey that has given many readers here the confidence to take on bigger projects than they otherwise would have attempted... cheers, Phil

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

I'm so sad to hear this. We currently live above asshats with cigarettes. They are horrible selfish stupid people. I worry about them burning down the place all the time. This makes me angry. Hoping for the best for you.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Its hard to tell from the pics. Is it heat, or smoke, or burning ember fallout, or all of the above?

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

minaret & missus,

I feel so sad for you! I'm sitting here halfway across the world and tears are streaming down my face. I feel so sad this horrible thing has happened to you; I probably can't even imagine how awful this is for you and your family.

Jim and I both wish you a speedy recovery from this horrible setback. Good luck with it. Our hearts are with you.

Ann & Jim
