Well, I'm on a tug boat. I run down and check sailnet, and run back up on deck to do something, run back down to the galley and have a look on the computer again when I get a chance. Sometimes my spelling and punctuation fall by the way side in my haste to post. I usually try and come back and edit later. In any case, I see The Mohawk and other Coast Gaurd Cutter's all over Central and South America, as well as U.S. Navy with a small Coast Gaurd Troop stationed on board. Most Times they just hail you, sometimes they come over and have a look. Writing in stream of conscious, gives me a little poetic freedom to puncuate the pauses of salty speak. I'll try to pay more attention in the future, so my point is not lost on the anal. It is possible Small boat lover's writitng style has rubbed off on me a little as well.
