Hi John, Hi Zee!

I've been busy relaxing in paradise Worked my way down the Exumas all the way to Georgetown. Here, now, I have the internet.

If any of you ever get a chance to get a mooring in the harbor at Warderick Wells, do it! The most beautiful place - undeveloped, unspoiled because of the park, and nice snorkeling right off the boat!

Actually not relaxing now - trying to get some projects done to get ready for the next leg of my journey. I've got a volunteer crew arriving on Feb. 6, then we can leave G-town for the outer islands and beyond.

Still no mate, but still hoping!!!

Margo

Howdy feral, flysci, zeezee, and boaty:

Things awkwardly busy here - awkward since its not boat related...actually its job and possibly startup business related...not sure that can count that as pleasure...you lucky sea dogs. If you know of a bendie boat for FREE I'll take it.

Feral - watch that wintery weather in NC I hear its been bad from my friend in Greensboro.

Flysci - enjoy your pleasant romp through paradise. It's great to hear you back online and all the good things in your plans. Your crew I am sure will be sweet as honey, and honey as you know is a fly attractor...so I am sure you will meet your soul fly soon...just hang in there and enjoy the journey!

Boaty - crazy boaty...thanks for pulling off that telethon thing for zeezee. You've been quite busy but I hope you can get your fins ready for another journey yourself soon. Spring is comin!

Zeezee - So crew is in the pocket? Thats great... Mexico for you girl. Just get over that crazy project of yours and be goneth. Maybe you will cross paths or buddy boat with flysci...so get goin!!

Progress

Hi Phil,

Yes I'm making progress, I feel more confident sailing my boat by myself now. Though I much prefer to have someone else aboard. The learning curve is still steep. The lessons in seamanship I don't mind learning - even the hard way! It's the dang repairs that have me moanin' low. I'se got de boat repair blues! I'd give a lot to have a skilled person aboard - I'd even cook for him, and that's going a long way.

Sure you don't want to leave the continent behind and come crew in the caribbean, Phil? 'Course you'd have to switch to the patch! Haha!

And Zee, I know you'll get to that warm air and water soon. Good luck with the crew. If you go offshore the whole way, at least he can't leave til you're there!

Margo

Hey.... come on Monkey... we both thought it was worth a go... I'm just faster on the Keyboard.....
Anyway.... its not me that organised the "Get Zee outa SD Appeal" it was an anonymous SD resident who felt his property values were being affected by an old boat under a bridge... and a crazy woman rowing round the Bay with a yowling cat on her shoulder....
But seriously... its the awesome members of CF who deserve the thanks... it did not even enter my head that this would/could happen....
Thank you all... each and every one of you...
Hugz...... (in a manly way....)
Phil

Ohy my! Monkey ears about Friday...be careful zeezee...as Captain Cook will get you!

Traditional Navy days start at NOON the day before...so Thursday NOON to Friday NOON is FRIDAY so be careful and make sure your catt is tied down. So nono zeezee sailing from Thursday NOON to Friday MIDNIGHT just to be sure!

On the other hand this makes for a longer weekend so boaty can go out partying early!

Zee and Monkey - you guys are hilarious!! Next thing you'll be telling me I cant' have a 13th story on my boat. Or to avoid my black boat kitty Wallace. Poor thing - and he loves me so!

The only thing I fear on my boat is my own ineptitude!

Margo
