Glad to help... the durable power of attorney can be very useful for things like renewing your USCG documentation, dealing with bills and credit card disputes, etc. It, obviously, has to be someone you trust completely and implicitly. And it beats having to try and fly back from the middle of nowhere on an emergency flight, which can get very difficult logistically and very expensive.

When I leave, I'll probably have two people take care of this for me, one being my sister and the other one of my friends.

BTW, in our situation our State Farm agent said we'd do as well to keep our oldest car just so we'd have continuity of insurance and not lose our >10-year good driving record, but we're still researching.
S'Dawg - good idea. The friends we'd most trust with this will also be cruising when we are, though <*grin*>, in fact we'll be buddy-boating down the ICW to Florida until they turn right to go through the Canal and we turn left to explore the Bahamas. I hate to pile on yet another 'favor owed' to the friends who are already generously giving us long-term storage for things like grandma's quilt and my mom's desk, but that may be the answer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
