Joe, we share a couple of interests in common, and I knew your name from aviation circles (DCpilots) long before I ever bought a sailboat, so it was a pleasant surprise when I came across this article.

I'm still hoping to do a Delmarva trip and toy with the idea of recuiting some fellow adventurous types and doing it non-stop as a sort of cruising tribute to the GOR.

That said the economic climate is making it very difficult to continue owning both the boat and the airplane and I may soon face having to dispose of one, the other, or possibly both in order to maintain my financial health.
