Back Again

Good Morning,

I have been absent from this forum for a number of years, however, at one time I was a very active member. We left CT in 2008 and sailed and lived on Tivoli for 3 years. Went back to work in 2011, now I'm back in FL were we left Tivoli. It appears that we now have much work to do to get back into the water, such is a boat.
It seems all of my old posts are gone and I have lost my stars... Anyway it is good to be back and look forward to some interesting conversations. And maybe some help on repairing my decks.

I remember you. Welcome back, Island Mike.

BTW your posts aren't gone. Your last one was a little over a year ago...

Re: Back Again

I think we're just seeing Islandmike as a different user name than Island Mike.

Re: Back Again

Well after we lived on her for 3 years we pulled her out while I went back to work. She sat in the hot FL sun and rain for another 3 years. Needless to say the top side decks are in rough shape. I just built a tent over her and will start rebuilding her decks... Hope to have her in the water by Jan 1? We shall see, how are things with you?

Thanks for the info. I remember my old Mariner 35 woody from the olden days with very happy thoughts. I think I'm slowing down a bit too much to get my current boat back in the water and it just might be time to pass the project on to someone new and energetic. Thanks for asking.
