Well done folks. I read that entire thread last week. Quite an experience. Can I have your shed? *wink*

Hope you have many adventures and stories to tell. Looking forward to hearing them all.

I would like to thank all of you and a special thanks to GordMay and Alan Wheeler. This is the best sailing board out there. Anytime I needed answers to real questions, I always got the right one and usually on the same day I posted. I would like to congratulate all of you on keeping up such a great resource for all of us sailors out there. Keep up the good work and I hope someday to meet all of you on the water.

Now I'm off to the boat to relax after work and have a cold brew from my fridge at the mooring and just enjoy the wind, the sea, the gentle roll and of course the view. Summer has begun!!!!!!!!

Great job on your restoration. You have good cause to be proud of the results. It will be one of the nicest Cheoy Lee's out there.

I have been restoring my Westsail for three winters. It has also turned out very well.

Happy Sails,

HERON

Hey don't thank me, I just sweep the floor and turn the lights off at the end of the day. I think Gord turns the lights on. Thus he needs more thanks than I :-)

Nice boat, beautifull finish. You should be rightfully proud. The truck is a little ripper too (sorry mr crane driver your services are not required today !) Hopefully six more months and l will be a nervous wreck as well. (again) cheersMartin

There comes a moment in every person's life when one must honestly evaluate one's worth as a human being. Iím going to put this moment off indefinitely. This week, envy reared its ugly head, realized there's nothing enviable about me, blinked a couple times, and went back to sleep
Thereís over 6.5 billion people in the world. Even if youíre 1 in a thousand - that means thereís about 6.5 million just like you.
