If he read SailNet he would have given up before he even started.

He's probably heard it all, and could school the whole lot of us. Best of luck to him.

Reading Sailnet was one of the things that inspired me to make the trip from the upper Chesapeake to the Florida Keys single handed. Had my 72nd birthday on the ICW, met some fantastic people, had a ball, there were some scary times, and lots of fun times. Thanks guys and gals. If my body parts continue to hold together, I hope to do it again in 2015. Someone told me that I would be the second oldest person to make this voyage single-handed. Neat!

Gary :cool:
