Congrats on the trip and the rally Dan. Will look forward to the articles!
BTW...had a Freedom at anchor here yesterday get mast struck by lightning. You can see burn marks on the mast head so he will have to pull it. The strike knocked out all his micro processor based electronics but his batts and engine were OK. They were on the boat at the time and didn't realize they'd been hit as they were down below and just thought it was a close strike. No insurance on the mast...just the boat...ooooof.
