Thank you, Lancerbye, for the welcome.
I suppose that acquiring a boat is like having another child in the family
. I must admit that I truly miss her. Yet, she is being well taken care of during my absence. An Indian gentleman by the name of Segar visits her weekly at the marina, keeps her clean, polishes everything, runs the engine
, oils her teak deck
and keeps her spic and span both topside and down below.
Perhaps it is the fate of some men
to live their lives perennially separated from the people and things they love the most. In the end, however, it all comes together. It just requires patience and a great deal of faith.
Isn't that always the way, with women and boats?
Kind regards and I wish you a good sail at Christmas!
