Teaching old dog new tricks.

To all our new friends. My wife and I are trying to tie up a few loose ends. It's amazing how many things have to be taken care of just to start over. We've been very busy. I haven't bought a boat yet. We have some ideas. Because of our age and relative ignorance we are planing on a sailing course on lake michingan this summer. Can you believe snow in southern Il. On march 27th. I believe that a piothouse boat would best suit our purposes. We plan to become oriented with our new lives on the Great Lakes. After I feel like I can safely venture forth we will start for the big blue. While we finish with the lawyers,family,and friends I will start to get prepared. Well, I've got a lot of work ahead! Drop me an email . gary
