As I read your responces and look back at my ordeal, I realize I was a complete newcomer to the cruising world. I will certainly heed your advises. I did not really present my self as arrogant or rich, I am neither. But I do understand what Mr. Honan stated on his reply. I guess I''ll have to learn the ways of extortion. Anyway, this event will not change my heading. I will just have to learn as I go. Thank you folks.
