Congratulations and best of luck. She's a very good looking gal.

Thanks everyone! It sure was great getting out and spending time on her. Too true about listening to the wind in the sails! (oh, and the speed sensing keel cable hum , that sure surprised us at first, now we consider it an audio speedometer).
