I can see my tombstone:
Here lies Bob Perry.
He never sailed a Folkboat.

I sailed in company with Hassey up to Princess Louisa inlet. I believe she used her motor some on that trip, but that's a tough trip to try and sail and sail she did.

That's a beautiful specimen of a folk-boat that she has. Cute kids too (one of which had a birthday at in Princess Louisa Inlet).

If you're up Hassey's way, you should ask to meet her friend "Ace". She's good people.
