Punctuation is not clear, but I think I would be accused of being a Kiwi -pretty flattering company to keep for a sailor. I don't know anyone who pays for crew air fares too and from, although I was asked for this by a TransPac racer, a legend inhis own mind, who used to frequent SN.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
