Great story Julie ! Thanks for shareing it I really like what your Dad was made of !
One's gotta love a guy that buy's a house with a dock just for his sailboat
BTW you have a fine mind to reason out the transducer problem during a crisis ! exellent reasoning ... "cooler heads prevail" as the saying go's.
Smack as always your a riot
You know, more and more I'm beginning to wonder if the predecessor to a BFS was to head out to sea with my dad. Don't get me wrong, I loved him dearly and I still miss him like hell. But he had this thing about him, I don't know what it was, when he said, "We are going to..." you just accepted it. I can't explain it. And then suddenly you found yourself scrambling for your life!
After he died, life wasn't as exciting. Yeah, that's sad to say. But he believed in his kids so much that he thought they could do anything. Somehow I guess I ended up to be the one that believed that the most. And when he invited me for a sail, I was there. OMG, the emotions are overflowing...
