Hey Parttime,
Well if you found it you already know, we are/our house is a mile from the lake right up by the National Park. This is Dune country. Nice marina at Michigan City is only about 10 miles, but we dock our boat up in Holland. Its a lot prettier up that way.

You only enjoyed that so much since it wasn't your money paying for it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Part of the reason you are enjoying it so much is the chemicals in the Paint you are scraping off while you lay on your back are effecting your brain. We call these chips of paint "paintdorphins"

Is it safe to assume he's doing this in his garage? That takes me back to my first boat - when boating was simpler and cheaper . . . don't miss trailering though.
