Looking forward to that. By the count of people that talk about it, I wonder if there is enough room on the ocean for the rest of us.

I like the story of Robert Manry, who crossed the Atlantic in a 13 ft boat that he essentially made. He didn't really care who knew, wasnt trying to set a record, had never sailed on the ocean before, nor did he expect his wife and the media to meet him in England.

Of course, he was probably nuts.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
