Ha! I knew your name sounded familiar! Hi Bob! Hows by you?? I justr exchanged emails with JT two days ago. Told him I was likley to run in to him the next couple of months. I know he is heading south and so am I. 3 trips. Marina Del Rey to Ixtapa on 54 Sea Ray- San Diego to Panama Island Packet 370 and Swan 53 from San Francisco to Mexico. All between end November and end January/February- Bound to run into BDE somehwere! He's a great guy and his learning curve is straight up! Have fun! What a kick!
