Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

He was just gutted. It took him weeks to share the bad news. For Dan to NOT share something, you know how devastated he was. I have no doubt he'l be back o the water soon.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

So sorry to see/hear this, it takes awhile to get back up after a knockdown like this, i know how it feels, lost my house awhile back to fire , it's really a horrific feeling, to walk out of the house like you have a hundred times before everything is fine, and then come back to this, it's like being hit in the guts with a club, i hope everything is alright (mentally i mean) it's easy to say a bunch of crap about stiff upper lip, don't beat yourself up, everything will be okay eventually, but i didn't want to hear any of that stuff when it happened to me so I'll just stick with I'm sorry this happened to him. it's nice he has some support from people around here, that may help.

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Oh man - that seriously sucks. As one who lost a boat last year due to a freak incident, he has my sincere condolences.

Hang in there Dog. Get another boat and keep sailing.

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Wow that's rough.

That was probably one of the most cared-for boats I know of.

Sad day SD (if you ever read this), really sorry to hear it especially with the intangible and irreplaceable loss this holds for you. Hope you find a good way to get it all back.

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Oh man... that is awful...
But at least you are alive, unharmed. It could have happened while you were asleep and that would have been so much worse.
You will get another boat and sail again. Lots of great bargains out there for handy sailors like you.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

On any level that is a crying shame. Very sad to hear indeed.

Jonesy .... from your message it would appear you are in contact with Dan ? I am, shall we say, somewhat on the outer with him but please extend commiserations specifically from me, but also from all the Mods.
