Y66, I didn;t imply they would have the part ready to go, but there are enough folks there to get one to you. What are you looking for? a Wal-Mart?

BTW, driving back from NYC this afternoon, I thought to myself...why didn't Y66 have his sails ready as backup for possible engine failure? Naughty Y66! Don't ever do that again!

i havent seen a non shiny boat in that group yet-- formosa motored by me-- with a beautifully painted and shiny hull--after the first sea passage that paint will be in sheets..lol..and shiny brightwork to make me blind, and all the bling--lol sporting a haha burgee-----looked down long snoots at my non-shiny example of why formosas have a bad rep..lol...i love it this way-- i was told always stay low key----i dont know how to do that- i DO know how to downplay attractiveness...LOL.....i dislike mobs, crowds and groups...have been into unique-ness my entire life, so the pattern is ingrained well.
is good to know what i need to look for for my neighbor in an anchorage...LOL.....
everyone who has ever met me has tried to make me "blend in" but is not possible- so i use my uniqueness as an advantage rather than a disadvantage..


i figure if i can sail in the middle of gulf of mexico in severe electrical storms and crazy seas, i can get this shiplet thru to beyond baja in this ocean of big rollers...mine shouldnt be any worse to handle than the other full keeler i sailed to ensenada long ago--was easy-- so what is a few hundred more miles before i stop?? lol.....if i dont need a yard for haulout, i will bypass baja totally and go to mazatlan with goals in the mexican riviera and southward....aim for panama and see how long it takes me to save up for canal transit...dont need no stinkin rally burgee for that!!! nor t-shirt to prove i sailed the trip----my presence should say that for itself.!!

Is Van Morrison the only guy that likes brown eyed girls? Yes, I'm brown eyed. Should I start a poll on whats more attractive? Brown or Blue?

Hey Zee!
You want bling, come to my dock in San Carlos. I'm undoubtedly the least expensive boat here, but not the least sea worthy by a long shot. Most are in the 250k-1 mil. range with a bevy of boat boys/men who wash and shine 'em up every day. In the mornings there is the low rumble of diesels as they twin screw out of their slips and spin with bow thrusters, and buzz off for a day of tournament fishing or sun crusing. Talk in the marina bar yesterday was all about a guy who wouldn't let it go after his challenge to the winning fish was disallowed by the rules committee. Seems it was a $10,000 fish.

And the Mexican boat boys/men have adopted the casual saunter and clothing of their norteno bosses, flops or boat shoes, shorts, t-shirt or golf shirt and bill cap dress and demeanor.

As for moi, 3 days opening up, washing, stowing in marina seca dusty yard, then 2.5 days with PO rigging, setting up systems, drinking beer, sweating, bruising, straining muscles I'd forgotten I had, swelling legs from mosquito bites, etc. I bushed. But today began getting on Mexican time in small ways but still pushing to get the boat ready.

A nice Canadian Dutch couple out for two years from Halifax, volunteered to crew for me for the 3.5 hour motor from Guaymas up to San Carlos. They were great and saved my ass and my insurance co. from loss when they disentangled my left shroud and stanchion from the anchor of a sport fisher coming in to my slip. "Stay as far as youcan on the other side of the channel to turn this full keeler into the slip and get your bow sprit pointed in before the pole", he said. Uh huh, and the caveat to all sailing technique advice is??? huh? Lesson numero uno is always "Account for the wind," which was increasing w/me on the leward side. No damage, thank the gods, but nerve wracking. Got into the slip past my slip neighbors 6' sprit sticking into the channel with no further adventures. A few boat issues to deal with but I'm learning to take it slow and just reason it out. Hope to have all resolved with a week or so, and if my bud shows as crew, we'll be off to Santa Rosalia and on down to la paz.

I'm aching to be out in an anchorage with no lights in sight and see the stars in full glory. A partner would sure be nice. poco a poco and one thing at a time. It will all fall into place I'm convinced.

Got the old name off yesterday and put on the new one today. Me and Neptune and Poseidon are all about half crocked now from our boat De-naming/Re-naming ceremony about an hour ago. Cheers

So a big question we have asked here that I could not answer until now - How do you know when you find your soul mate?
answer - you just know it, without a doubt.



Cheers,
Erika

P.S. My soul mate's sign on name is RainDog (thought you might want to know). If ya run into him, tell him only good things about me, it took me so long to finally corner him (but I now have him in my clutches! wah ah ah)
Hey congrads, 'Ol Raindog is one lucky cuss. How can anyone say anything Bad about RD OR You, there are just good things to say.

Besides he has a bigger boat.

Me? I am still in Fort Worth taking care of Mama's business affairs, getting the house listed and disposing of a lifetime of furnature, belongings and so forth. Objective is to be back in St Pete week after next.

Mama's fine, she at 83 just has no business living alone.
