Re: "Destiny"

tracy greene,

Welcome aboard. I'm utterly fascinated. I've never spoken to someone in your situation, and it sounds like a wonderful project. I take it that this boat is a beloved old friend, and you're going to have some beautiful moments, as well as frustrating ones. I wish you good luck with all my heart! It's going to be an adventure, and, possibly become a *Sticky* if you post pics and text to document the project.

[If you haven't seen minaret's "Refitting a Nauticat 52", and you have time, take a gander. To me, a very impressive thread.]

Jim and I are long time cruisers, presently in Australia, having left San Francisco about March of '89, the 2nd time.]

Ann
