Oi!

Names Jonathan, pleasantries.

Drama precedes my current state. I am, somewhat regretfully, restoring a 1973 Columbia 45 foot Pilot House motor/sailor.

The vessel had sat for quite some time before I got my hands on it. We're getting there, she's a strong ship, been aboard through all the storms in Tampa Florida lately.

She ain't me first boat, prolly won't be me last.

No, but I met him, gave me a tour of his Columbia. Nice guy he was.
