Ahoy, halyardz , I can be reached at mredden@earthlink .net . I''ll have this article and list scanned onto a disk and then I can send it to you. As far as the transition things are going well the boat is progressing well and the only complaint would be the variety and interesting diversions available here . My marina ,a commercial fishing outpost, isn''t what you''d think to be the kind of place on anyones list but it sure is cheap enough and very close to the gulf at the mouth of Charlotte harbor. $4.00'' plus tax per month. I''ve had more trouble with bankers and loan people and the like understanding the concept of dual residency. Health Insurance went way up , auto way down. Some of this stuff forces you to chose residency one place or the other, so look at each process carefully. Wound up with two internet providers double all utility stuff(if you keep the fridge and heat on up north). Starts to motivate one to cut the ties. I''ve kept my fiberglass business up north and can operate here but the idea of moving my shop here is scary. Tractor trailer scary. Otherwise all is well. Our motto is go slow look at every move six ways and keep looking ahead. Sailing here is great and we have our first winter guest comming down for a sail. Nice to be able to play with life a little. Love all the posite response here at sailnet and hope me pirate ways don''t offend too many of me aquaintences. Then again wot''s the plank for anyway? Big Red the Pirate of Pine Island. See you on the horizon (smoking from me broadside I thinks)
