Request for Prayers

Sailors,
A long time member and contributor here is in need of your help.
Please keep Mike C (Bubb2) and the entire family in you're thoughts and prayers as Mike continues to battle heart conditions.

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.

I've kept them in my thoughts and will continue to. Life isn't fair and they have had more than their share to deal with these past couple of years. Yet, through it all, just as Courtney's courage was inspirational, so has been Mike's unfailing optimism and perseverance.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Unfortunately I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Mike. He keeps his boat in the same marina as my father and has helped him out so many times and in so many ways that I can't begin to thank him enough. I'm very sorry to hear he's having problems and will be thinking of him.

Dang! I will be thinking of them as well.
I hope to see Mike out on the mighty Hudson on his Bendytoy this spring.

Absolutely!

Thank you for the heads up on this. I was deeply touched by Mike, and his two daughters opening up and sharing the details of Courtney's battle. To hear that Mike is now fighting his own battle... well it just isn't fair!

He is in my prayers. Let us know if we can help in other ways too!
