Re: Knock Downs

No written story. Just got back to St. Mary's, GA two weeks ago after dodging "Rafael" and "Sandy" on passage through the Carribean. I was so homesick after being away from the U.S. for 2 years and 8 months that I took a big chance and sailed back during hurricane season (rounded Grenada and headed North on October 15th). Very bad idea and I was extremely lucky to have gotten only storm force winds and not worse (at least the storms up here were warm and not an icebox like the Southern Ocean in April). Home is the sailor home from the sea. Ron on "Ferrous"
