younger than springtime

hello from an old bloke who still think that he is 20 years old and used to teach sailling in Spain and France in the 60's, worked on J class boat in greece. Longest solo sailling 64 days, used to have 2nd engineer ticket, got ship wrecked with the loss of half of the crew (8 men). Build two steel sailling boats, 43 & 37 feets, the first one went down with Tracy, (the cyclone, not the wife), survived two cyclones(good boats and luck) (the sea can be harsh). Background in electrical generation and control. Like the sea and the land.

You never never know if you never never go.

Ahoy Chala,

" Younger than Springtime" seems like a good title for a book... it sounds like you could write one.
