I see, well good then, She's already having some luck turn her way.

I'd love to host Courtney and Riley too, because I like her style. But unfortunately, we're in Annapolis. On the hard.

Seafever was hit BY a SAILBOAT 6 weeks after a 20 month refit

IT does NOT look like much BUT due to the fiberglass dust issues i had to remove EVERYTHING from the boat to do the repair and that is were the cost starts going UP

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Courtney... I'm fairly certain if Jaden had been left on watch when you went ashore none of this would have happened!

All kidding aside... I've been following your blog since almost day one and this news hit me as if I had heard it from a family member. Best of luck to you in the recovery process. I'm glad to hear you aren't rushing to find an ambulance chaser just yet. Trust that the process will work in your favor from the other insurance company (no reason to involve yours), but don't be afraid to defend your rights with any means possible if things do start heading south.

Aaron we need to turn your life into a blog, or a movie, or both (=a youtube tv show about anchors?)

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

I was once explainig all my mis-adventures to a new girlfriend who was contemplating sailing down to the Caribbean with me and she said " geez< I don't know if I want to go to sea with someone who has had all that bad luck and made all those mistakes" I replied " I don't know if I would want to go to sea with someone who hasn't!"

Capt-T, Yes, if only he'd been around to stop it! Now that we've brought him up, I'm not going to deny that I've thought about, if things do go south, highlighting certain passages in the book and sending the book along to the people involved in the process, thus letting them know what kind of imagination I have. Sections and scenes from chapter eleven comes to mind...But I've so far restrained myself.

When me and SV Libby are in a misadventure, I try to think what book Libby, her namesake, would do in the situation. Usually the response is the same: be witty and make jokes. If life immitates art, then the SV Libby will fully recover and return to her clever remark-making and brave ways, but only after a painful and arduous recuperation.
