Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!
Some people persist with the financial disparity. I know sailing is the sport of kings, and nowdays it seems that you need the national bank of abu shaving to afford to participate. I. am not rich.monetarily. I have good friends who want to help. They help me for several reaaons, amongst them the fact that I have most likely helped them. And most likely will again.Uplift in your community, even if only for the most selfish of reasons, that if those in your community ate well off you are sure to benefit by proxy as well.Many of my neighbors think that both I and the Miss Liberty are Clearwater Beach Icons, and often help out for no other reason.She can be resurected, I am a fairly healthy man of 41 who's been around a bit. I don't have a PhD in sailology, I don't know everything, or even close, but I got around a little, I learned enough to handle her myself. There was already lots of work to be done, but I'm prettycapableIm pretty sure I can do it. If the roof blew off your house, you don't just abandon the house, say "oh well " and walk away, you fix it, usually, using that which remains that's structurally sound. The Sailors used to repair damage to their ships at sea and on strange coasts I see no reason it cannot be done. I am planning to sail in Gasparilla this next February. I don't have the money specifically to pull it all off yet, but some dear friends have gone out of their way to throw me some work, and usually pay me even a little more than the jobs are worth, be aide everyone wants us back, and so. Back we will be.
