Well - we lost our boat on Monday. I really had no idea how heartbreaking it could be. She's now sitting on the bottom of Lake Travis in about 100' of water. Story here:

The Saddest Day of a Sailor's Life

The rule has always been that to count as BFS - you have to bring her home in one piece - on your own. That didn't happen this time. But, that wonderful old Catalina 27 gave us so many BFS's - she deserves to be here.

RIP you great old boat. I'll miss you.
