Thanks ColinV...great information!

42nd Street...will check out the "ocean Hunter", sounds interesting!!? Just bought the boat, built in 82 but well equiped for cruising although I am in the process of updating a lot of the running rigging. Here are a few photos...Blue Dolphin, Roberts 55 Ferro boat

I will say that Kathy has been the "driving force" behind this whole adventure! The only problem is that she suffers from seasickness and has to take a prescrition drug to maintain a certain level of usefulness! ;-)
She's a realtrooper and even though she is a "rookie" sailor, she is willing to learn. Blus Dolphin is a big boat and we have to decide if we need to have others cruise with us or manage ourselves. When are you planning on going, if you go? Maybe we can randevous at the canal or somewhere in the Caribbean! Stay in touch.
