I sure feel for both you and Hamburking. As he says, best to keep active. BTW you probably know you have a fairly well-known boat in certain circles (those who love S&S et al.) I have never sailed one but I hear they are great. For 4k if the engine
is running and its sailing, that's not too bad. Nothing can sail you away from heartache, or rib
pain, but it can fill your days with some fun to help fill the gaps and keep your mind on the better days ahead. I'm on the opposite side and so I have no advice
on Fla., sorry. BTW, not sure if you saw this but I remembered I saw your (model of) boat here:http://bluewaterboats.org/she-31/
. Looks a lot like LizzyBelle's Ohlson 29 I think.
