Fantastic. I second the suggestion about the woodenBoat forum, though you seem to know what you're doing. I believe we met once briefly. My wife and I were walking through the boatyards at Greenport a few years ago. You and your wife were working on boat parts on shore, hurrying to finish before rain started. I was interested in your boat (I'm a wooden boat guy too), and you kindly answered a few questions. I live on Long Island, I'd be interested to meet you and see your boat. I'm willing to check on her or other errands if I can assist you. If you want assistance bringing her (partway) home, I'm retired with plenty of sailing experience. I brought my own boat home from Florida.
Thank you, so many people have stopped by over the years, it's hard to keep track of who's who. I will keep your kind offer of help in mind. We plan on sailing her in the Spring, who knows I may well need an extra pair of hands. Did you bring your boat up from Florida on the intercoastal waterway?
