Wating for a satellite fix no doubt.

Usually Amazon is quick-like.

Sorry to hear that Tom.

Keep us informed on her condition.

Prayers for you both!

Tom -- Congratulations. Hope your wife gets better quickly and the weather cooperates with you when you can leave.

Will be here in Indiana thinking about how you made it out.

Her dr has doubts she can stand up to a cruising winter. I'm currently looking at short term rentals for now.

What a fun little boat. Bet she don't break your pocket either?

Enjoy!

Shane, she's definitely sweet. Sails like a dream, and can be singlehanded, easily. If we have to put off for a season, I'll just day sail her and slowly redo the salon/coach in teak.

My wife is improving. 94% O2 sat, but on O2 @ the time. She may need oxygen on dismissal, and tjat'll be a problem because I don't have anywhere near the available ps needed on the boat and it'll require aassive upgrade.

Fair winds and following seas Tom. We sold everything in '96. I can assure you you will wonder how you ever lived in a land based house. Let the fun begin!

We bought a little trailer for now, about 4 miles from the marina. I'm just covering bases here. Whole the wife recovers, we'll need a land base.since she'll definitely be on O2 for a while. Just a little hiccup.
