Welcome and good luck with the Slocum 43 - they were a beautiful, seaworthy design.

Welcome aboard and congratulation on your new member of the family. I hope she brings you as much joy, in the future as your daughter, but less expensive.

Regards

Alan

cograds! if you make it to charleston one day give us a shout, the boys can play together. I have a 4yr old, he thinks he's an old salty sailor, but he's been in boats from birth.
