    Moving on Gord....trawler time. Love this boat, it is amazing, but it is time. We said from the outset we would try the sailing gig for two years....it's over two now. The Great Loop is calling!

    Gord, summer greetings from across the lake. There is a 40% chance we may get to Thunder Bay at the end of August. Will give you a heads up. We will have a couple Brits that we met on the big trip. We want to show them our cruising grounds.

    Hi Gord! I was wondering if I might ask a favour. You made a comment about Aruba marina prices here:

    In Aruba, you may find yourself limited to the Renaissance Marina, in Oranjestad harbor:
    Rates:
    $1.00/foot a day
    $5.00/foot a week
    $15.00/foot a month
    $140.00/foot a year
    All services (water, electricity, etc) extra.

    I'm writing an article on the cost of living on your sailing boat in the Caribbean, and I was wondering if I could use this as a quote in my article? If it's ok, what type of boat were you on at the time? I would be so glad of your help! Kind regards! Jessie

    Thank you for your post about the Wesco. It brought back some painful memories but also pride in what some consider the "other " Navy; the "Gator Navy", backbreaking brutal work ,often unrecognized and unglamorous. Thanks

    Hi Gord, thanks now a know not to put clear coat on bottom paint. The shark will be above the waterline. Heres my plain ; paint the sides in some type of white marine paint. Then clear coat the sides. And then have a silhouette of shark taped off. Next mix green glow power into some clear coat and paint glow inside of shark stencil. The glow additive can not be seen in the day , it will only glow for 8 to 10hrs at dark.
    The reason for first coat of clear on the sides is so the glow won't bleed into the white , for adhesion , touch-up ,etc..
    It looks like now my biggest problem is finding a white marine paint that has a matching brand of clear coat that will work together.
    Thanks again.
    Steve.

    Hi Gord, yes it is Max. He is a friend of my wife and I and we have sailed with him a few times over the last few months. He had dinner with us Saturday night and we waved him out of port on Sunday lunchtime. He fixed his position via the Delorme map share Sunday and Monday as arranged at 18:00 no word since. So I'm worried but pretty much unable to do anything bar wait to see if he arrives over the w/e or Monday / Tuesday next week
