Re: New Member, New Liveaboard

I really wanted to but it was just too old and there was too much damage. I saved what I could with the intention to keep the teak cockpit. For now I'm most of the way through the deck repair with the intention of laying dynel down on top of the repaired fiberglass for a canvas deck look, best I can do on a tight budget.

Good luck with your refit!

By the way, what ever happened to Tom? Did he manage to head south?

They are in South Carolina. Well actually Sunshine is but Tom and Nancy are in Virginia working. Fell into some good work updating mall stores. They are paying food and lodging and salary for both of them. I think it is about 12 weeks of work.

Last time I spoke to them the plan was to head to the Bahamas with the cruising crowd this winter. They sound very happy and are close to their son while working in VA.

The did head south a little late and had some really cold passages.

Good for them. They're great people, I'm glad things are working out for them.

One day I'll stop rehabing boats and finally head south.... maybe.... :-P

Ha. And I'll stop continually prepping my boat, quit my job and go.

We are hoping to meet up with them next November.

Re: New Member, New Liveaboard

Well if we ever meet I'll drink to that. Hopefully it'll be someplace warm. :-)
